The strong frontal system which caused devastation in Oklahoma this week pushed through the region Tuesday.

Thankfully there were no reported injuries, but flooding was reported in low-lying areas and there was widespread minor to moderate wind damage.

Trees were downed in several areas, including near St. Francis. Reports also came out of Caraway and Malden of trees and limbs down, and a framework construction project was blown down on Post Road near Jonesboro.

Hail was also reported in several areas, including near Trumann, and dime to golf ball sized hail was reported near Warren as conditions were more severe in the southern half of the state.
