June 1, 2008 Western Arkansas Storms


Afternoon Storms

A severe line of storms associated with a MCC (Mesoscale Convective Complex) moved out of Eastern Oklahoma and into Western Arkansas bringing with it severe winds and heavy rain. Damage was reported all through the river valley from Roland through Fort Smith and on eastward through Lavaca, Greenwood, Ozark, and Altus. Here are video and pictures from the storm as it passed as seen from Log Town Hill in Van Buren, AR







Morning Storms

Earlier in the day several severe storms moved southeast from Northwest Arkansas into the River Valley. I setup near Mulberry as a formerly severe storm moved through there. The storm showed supercellular characteristics and I observed a rotating wall cloud. Here is video of that and pictures of the storm.
