Episode Narrative A strong upper level disturbance interacted with a very warm and humid air mass in place across the region allowing several severe thunderstorms to develop during the evening hours of the 9th. The storms developed across far northeastern Louisiana and southeast Arkansas initially, gradually moving south as the evening wore on. Damage due to wind and hail occurred as a result of these storms, in addition to some damage as a result of lightning.
Event Narrative Trees and power lines were blown down due to a microburst on the west bank of Lake Saint Joseph south of Newellton.
