... NWS damage survey for 08/19/18 thunderstorm wind event...

On Sunday evening, several supercell thunderstorms developed
and moved northeast over portions of north central Arkansas.
These storms produced large hail up to golfball size, and
copious amounts of rainfall, and several reports of wind
damage to trees. Wind damage to trees was reported in
Pope, Conway, and Van Buren counties. Wind damage to
structures was only reported in Conway County and the
National Weather Service surveyed that damage today, Tuesday
August 21st.

The damage surveyed was found on Tucker Mountain in Conway
County. From Tucker Mountain Road to Gadberry drive, there
were several trees that were blown over. Many of the trees
were isolated in fields with a large wind exposure or were
rotten and their trunks broke easily. Two structures/homes
were damaged in the area. One home had the awning of its
porch blown off, taking some of the nearby siding with it,
before coming to rest in a tree behind the house. The
second structure sustained damage when a tree was blown
on top of it. After looking at the structure, it doesn't
look like any part of the structure was damaged by winds
alone; the tree appeared to be responsible for all of the
damage to the home.

Emergency management reported that flash flooding accounted for
the bulk of the monetary damage across Conway County. Trees
were reported blown down in Van Buren and Pope counties as well
but there was no focused path of damage reported. Flash flooding
also caused the most damage to property in Pope and Van Buren
counties. The most common impact of flash flooding was that
several County roads had areas where they were washed out.
