LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - No injuries or damage have been reported as severe thunderstorms roll across western Arkansas.
The National Weather Service issued tornado warnings for Crawford, Logan, Scott and Yell counties Tuesday afternoon when the storms pushed out of eastern Oklahoma.
Logan County emergency management coordinator Don Fairbanks says officials were monitoring a storm as it moved over Mount Magazine but spotters didn't report a tornado, and his office hadn't received any calls about injuries or damage.
Sheriff's offices in Crawford, Scott and Logan counties also said there had been no confirmation of tornadoes touching down, and no damage or injuries were reported.
Flash-flood warnings were issued for Crawford and Sebastian counties, and several streets in Rogers were closed. Officials say there were no reports of accidents or motorists stranded in high water.
