**Little Rock Arkansas** Not in Alabama
A TORNADO EMERGENCY has been declared for the Little Rock metro area.
There is a threat for CATASTROPHIC DAMAGE. The National Weather Service has reported a large and destructive tornado over Burns Park at 2:28 p.m. That had moved to near North Little Rock at 2:32 p.m.
As we head into the midday and early afternoon hours, a row of strong storms (perhaps severe) will be moving through western Arkansas. These will approach central Arkansas and the Little Rock Metro during the early afternoon and mid-afternoon hours. At this point, storms will already be rotating.
Then as storms ease into eastern Arkansas, these rotating storms will be more likely to bring that rotation to the surface. While the risk for tornadoes is lower in parts of Arkansas, there is still a risk for short-lived, weak tornadoes. Regardless, all tornado warnings should be treated with the utmost urgency.
