Arrow Post-Storm Roll Call. Is everyone okay??

After the round of tornadoes and severe storms yesterday, last night and again today (and also seeing all the devistation in Texas on the news today) I just wanted to start a Roll Call thread to see if everyone made it through okay.

We're fine here in Little Rock. We lost power for a while last night but were back online pretty quickly.

We had 3 full waves of severe storms come through Arkansas overnight and through the day today. Large hail and high winds were the worse we had here but trees are down everywhere (due to the winds), about 3500 people are without power due to some 19 power poles being toppled when trees fell into the lines.

We did have several tornado warnings issued both last night and today but fortunantly none actually touched down in the state.

We didn't even get a drop from that one, thank goodness!! 3 people died and several are hospitalized from that. It wasn't even a large cell!! People always expect to see a huge storm cluster when a tornado is mentioned. Not so though. That one was about 75-80 miles north of us. Sad!!
Glad to hear you didn't get the bad parts either. . One more avoided. Now, if we can just get through the rest of the season without misshap.

Raven, I swear you are in the path of the worst weather we've had this year so far!

We had 3 full waves move through then a 4th tried to get it's act together up in the northern part of the state but it just didn't have enought energy left. So now we're looking at a few day's repreive before any more stuff is supposed to head this way. :)
