UPDATE 12:00 A.m.:::: Strong winds, rain and hail from severe thunderstorms that moved through the area Wednesday night caused headaches around the county with downed trees and power lines disrupting electric service, obstructing roadways and causing some property damage. So far, we have received reports of two houses damaged by falling trees but no injuries were reported.
The National Weather Service said a few thunderstorms may linger across north Louisiana and southwest Arkansas through midday Thursday before diminishing by Thursday afternoon. Only isolated showers and thunderstorms are expected across portions of the region on Friday and Saturday before becoming more scattered by Sunday through early next week. Although severe weather is unlikely, a few strong storms may be possible from Sunday through early next week.
