Once again, we continue to track a fair number of bad storms through the river valley. >> Some rain will return to Northwest Arkansas, but the serious threat we face is right here in the NWA. Ah, it's not over yet. Across the river valley. I would say most of Sequoia County, most of Crawford County, uh, that risk is starting to diminish. Far southeast of Sequoia County, southern Crawford County, something might still be there. But, uh, for the most part it dwindles there as well. So we're looking around the I-40 corridor and south for any new developments. The main concern now. However, the flash flood component to all of this across the river valley in Fort Smith, we had flash floods. You know, it's not unusual for us to have flash flooding in Fort Smith when we get this heavy rain. You know, in some other cities this amount of rain might not lead to flash flooding, but it does in Fort Smith. Uh, me repeated. So some of the usual flooded locations are flooded again. Uh, and we'll continue to see issues with that. This is a major concern because people who don't know anything about those usual sites might get into trouble. I won't be able to drive all this evening anywhere in the river valley, because we'll have flash flooding elsewhere as well. It will be a common problem throughout this area with storms, training in the same areas, and very heavy rainfall. Ah, this is a real big problem. now. We now have two severe thunderstorm warnings, this one for Franklin County, and this one for Siver County. That's because there's a little bit of a wind threat with some of this stuff out back. Besides the risk of flash floods, there is a bit of a wind threat with some of these risks as well. So I just want to stay inside and away from windows as all this kind of stuff works its way through. We'll be watching to see if we can get, oh, maybe another shot at, oh, cycle, maybe another hurricane. Well, south of Fort Smith. More in Puteaux to Hevenor-le-Fleur County, Scott County, South Sebastian, Logan County area. Uh, the only current hurricane that we know of is the one near Hot Springs Village that we told you about earlier. This could end up being a major tornado threat through the rest of the night in central Arkansas, which will be good for the people around here, I'm sure. But, uh, we'll be watching it closely regardless. Well, full update at 9:00 on The CW, at 10 on 40/29. In the meantime, keep the clock set to 40/29 nine. We will reduce the amount if we need to, before that
