KTHV is reporting a tornado warning for several counties in central Arkansas including Grant, Saline, Dallas and Hot Spring Counties. Spotters have reported a funnel near Leola, south of Sheridan in Grant County. Radar also indicated another twister 4 miles south of Prattsville.
From the looks of KTHV’s most recent radar images, the nastiest cell of the storm is tracking northeast, which should take it through Little Rock in the next hour or so. Batten down the hatches, mateys!
UPDATE: Tornado sirens are going off in Little Rock.
