A possible tornado touched down in Bearden, blowing off roofs, uprooting trees and shattering store-front windows along Main Street, according to Ouachita County Sheriff David Norwood.
No injuries have been reported.
"It looks like it hit about a four-block area," Norwood said. "The crews are out checking to make sure there are no injuries and that we've got all residents accounted for. We're blocking roads to keep out looters from the stores."
