... Flash Flood Watch in effect from Friday evening through Sunday
evening...

The National Weather Service in Little Rock has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of central Arkansas, eastern
Arkansas, north central Arkansas, southeast Arkansas,
southwest Arkansas, and western Arkansas, including the
following areas, in central Arkansas, Conway, Faulkner,
Garland, Grant, Lonoke, Perry, Pope, prairie, Pulaski, Saline,
white, and Yell. In eastern Arkansas, Jackson, Monroe, and
Woodruff. In north central Arkansas, Baxter, Boone, Cleburne,
Fulton, Independence, Izard, Marion, Newton, Searcy, sharp,
stone, and Van Buren. In southeast Arkansas, Arkansas and
Jefferson. In southwest Arkansas, Clark, Dallas, Hot Spring,
and Pike. In western Arkansas, Johnson, Logan, Montgomery,
Polk, and Scott.

* From Friday evening through Sunday evening

* several periods of rain, heavy at times, will create areas of
flash and river flooding across much of Arkansas. On Wednesday,
1 to 2 inches of rain, with some locations receiving higher
amounts, fell across Arkansas as an upper level and surface
system move through the region. Friday night and over the
weekend, additional weather systems will bring rain, heavy at
times to Arkansas. At this time, an additional 3 to 6 inches of
rain, with locally higher amounts, will be possible. A few
isolated locations, especially in northwest and northern
Arkansas, may approach 6 to 7 inches of rain. This amount of
rain will create dangerous flash flooding conditions, as well as
rises on rivers that will be significant.

* Evacuations of flood and flash flood prone areas may be needed,
and those interests along Arkansas rivers will need to monitor
this developing dangerous weather situation.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

If you are in the watch area, keep informed, and be ready for quick
action if flash flooding is observed or if a warning is issued.
Persons living in low lying areas along main-Stem rivers should
monitor the latest forecast and be ready to evacuate to higher
ground.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the Road
to unknown depths. Take a different Route to reach your destination
or wait until the water recedes. Remember, most flood related
deaths occur in automobiles and flooding is the leading cause of
weather related deaths.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.

... NWS damage survey for 04/26/2017 Yell and Pope County
thunderstorm wind damage...

This damage survey was coordinated with Yell and Pope County
emergency management offices.

.Yell County tornado...

Rating: EF-0
estimated peak wind: 85 mph
path length /statute/: 0.5 miles
path width /maximum/: 50 yards
fatalities: 0
injuries: 0

Start date: 04/26/2017
start time: 1004 am CDT
start location: 7.8 miles WSW of Dardanelle
start lat/lon: 35.1855 / -93.2909

End date: 04/26/2017
end time: 1005 am CDT
end location: 7.5 miles WSW of Dardanelle
end lat/lon: 35.1903 / -93.2841

Ef scale: the Enhanced Fujita scale classifies tornadoes into
the following categories.

EF0... weak... ... 65 to 85 mph
EF1... weak... ... 86 to 110 mph
EF2... strong... .111 to 135 mph
EF3... strong... .136 to 165 mph
EF4... violent... 166 to 200mph
EF5... violent... >200mph

.Thunderstorm wind damage summary of Yell into southern Pope counties...

Peak wind e: 90 mph
path length /statute/: 9 miles
path width /maximum/: 2 miles
fatalities: 0
injuries: 0

Start date: 04/26/2017
start time: 0954 am
start location: 1 mile west of Rover

End date: 04/26/2017
end time: 1012 am CDT
end location: 1 mile southwest of Russellville

The longest continuous stretch of wind damage occurred from Rover to
Plainview... this is where the 9 mile long path and 2 mile width of
the damage comes from. There was also damage reported in the cities of
Danville, Dardanelle, and Russellville, but the swath of damage was
not as continuous as the Rover to Plainview damage. Aside from the
brief spin up tornado on slo Fork Road west of Highway 27, all of
the wind damage in Yell and southern Pope counties was determined to
have been caused by straight line winds. The strongest wind damage
estimated was 90 mph winds and was rated that high because of several
instances of large trees that were uprooted and fell onto homes in
the communities of Rover, Plainview, Danville, and Dardanelle. The
Straight line winds produced significantly more damage than the
small tornado in northern Yell County in this instance.

Note:
the information in this statement is preliminary and subject to
change pending final review of these events and publication in
NWS storm data.
