Entergy Arkansas reported about 1,000 customers in the dark Wednesday, the morning after a storm packing heavy rains and high winds moved through the region.
The utility at one point Tuesday night reported more than 8,000 power failures.
By 11 a.m. Wednesday, that number was reduced to 1,008. About 300 of those customers were in Jefferson County, and 127 were in Pope County.
The storms that moved through Wednesday night produced several thousand lightning strikes, up to 40 mph wind gusts and as much as 5 inches of rain in parts of Northwest Arkansas.
The National Weather Service took several reports of damage in Arkansas. In Morrilton, "numerous" power lines were said to be downed by the winds. In Dardanelle, a tree was uprooted and in nearby Ola, a chicken house had roof damage. Large tree limbs were blown down in Conway near Lower Ridge Road, and a tree fell and blocked Arkansas 5 for a time southeast of Hot Springs Village in Garland County.
No injuries were reported.
