That is just a piece of the damages left behind. The heavy winds and rain began a little after 2 p.m. Fire officials and power crews say the damage was wide spread. There were numerous trees that had fallen across roadways throughout the county.

“Pretty wide spread. There’s trees down everywhere from out at Highway 10 to all the way up here, up Montgomery Highway. There’s I think they said somebody got paged that I can’t remember, they said there was trees down as far as they could see. I know the one we just cleared off 31 broke the power poll slap in half off the side of the road,” Clay Newton with the Searcy Fire Department said.

Local officials also say to stay clear of fallen trees where downed lines may be hidden.
