Tornado watches were covering a good portion of Arkansas on Jan. 12, as a cold front collided with warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico, leading to a stormy afternoon. Flooding was reported in Polk County and a flash flood watch covered much of the state as well.

Thanks to Carla Vaught, extension staff chair in Polk County, and to Phil Sims, extension staff chair in Pope County, for relaying the reports.
