Storm system dumps
rain, causes damage

Wells Creek Road, located near Ravenden, is impassable after floodwaters washed out the roadbed. Heavy rains proved to be the most damaging part of the storm system for Lawrence County.
A storm system that passed through Lawrence County during the overnight hours on Sunday resulted in several tornado warnings, but fortunately, no tornados in this area.

Others in Arkansas, such as residents of Vilonia and Mayflower, were not as fortunate, and Lawrence County's good fortune was further emphasized on Monday as individuals in the county began finding items that had been picked up by tornados in those towns.

One such item was a form from Construction Waste Management Inc. in Mayflower, which was found in Black Rock.
