Severe thunderstorms that rumbled through Garland County early Tuesday morning caused some structural damage to buildings in the Pleasant and Gulpha Street area of Hot Springs.

Some roads are also reportedly being barricaded due to storm damage.


More than 4,000 Entergy Arkansas Inc. customers in Hot Springs and Garland County were without power Tuesday morning following a round of severe weather.

Garland County was placed under a severe thunderstorm warning until 2:15 a.m. Tuesday, which was extended until 2:45 a.m.

In the latter severe thunderstorm warning, the National Weather Service said 70 mph wind gusts and quarter-size hail could be expected with the storm.

"An automated station in Hot Springs recently recorded a 71 mph wind gust," the warning stated.

At 2:02 a.m., severe thunderstorms were located along a line extending from near Perryville to 8 miles south of Williams Junction to near Rockport, moving northeast at 55 mph.

On its outage map, Entergy was reporting 4,303 outages in Garland County as of 5:30 a.m.

While the outages were widespread in the county, most appeared to be in the north and east.

One of the largest, 721, affected the Fountain Lake area.
