The National Weather Service says no tornadoes were confirmed from storms that struck earlier this week, but there were indicators of flash flooding.

Warning coordination meteorologist John Robinson said Friday that a team drove through Yell and Scott counties, where tornado warnings were issued on Monday. Robinson says the team traveled along Arkansas Highway 27 from Dardanelle to Rover and then headed west on Arkansas Highway 28 to U.S. 71 at Needmore.

He says officials searched for tornado damage on county roads, but found none.

Robinson says virtually every creek had overflowed from excessive rain. He says debris in trees and fences indicated water depth of between 6 feet and 7 feet just off Arkansas 28 in Yell County.

He says the state is fortunate there were no flooding fatalities.

More storms are in store for Arkansas this weekend as a cold front slowly moves into the state. There is even a chance for the season's first snow.

Heavy rain is the main threat, although damaging winds are possible as well, Robinson said.

As the colder air makes its way into the state, there is a possibility of a mixture of rain and snow in parts of western and northern Arkansas. That chance increases Sunday night into Monday morning.

Information on fundraising was contributed by The Associated Press and Arkansas Online.

Cool. I, too, found no damage.

But I didn't spend very much time looking, so I may have overlooked some.

I just dropped by to say, we had a short reprieve in this case - the insurance industry, I mean. I call this a silver lining.
