    Unhappy 3 dead after tornado hits NW Ark on New Year's Eve

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. A tornado fueled by an unusually warm winter air sliced through parts of northwestern Arkansas early on New Year's Eve, killing at least three people, injuring several others and knocking out power to thousands of homes and businesses.


    Three people died in Cincinnati, a hamlet of about 100 residents about three miles from the Oklahoma border. Washington County sheriff's dispatcher Josh Howerton said the storm touched down near the center of the community. He said "lots of injuries" were reported, and officials in nearby Benton County said the storm injured two people and damaged five homes there.

    Prayers for everybody affected, in Jesus' Name, amen.

    I slept right through this whole storm. Sure was surprised when I woke up around 9 am to the news of the deadly storm in Cincinnati. Last time I heard that small town mentioned was when Pauline Devor went missing.
    (Missing 2007, found 2009. Her daughter has pled guilty to first degree murder. Husband has been arrested as accomplice.)

    We had tornado watches here in NE OK, thunder, lightning, pouring rain, all a bit odd at the last of December.

    Tornado on Arkansas-Oklahoma border kills three

    CINCINNATI, Ark. - Three people are confirmed dead and a rural fire department was destroyed after a tornado ripped through an Arkansas border town, officials confirmed Friday.

    Gerald Dean Wilson, 88, and Mamie Wilson, 78, were found dead inside their destroyed home at 12618 Highway 59 North, according to the sheriff’s department in Washington County, Ark.

    James Richard “Dick” Murray, 78, was found dead inside a nearby dairy barn. Murray had been milking cows when the tornado hit, officials said.

    Cincinnati is a community of about 100 people located near the Oklahoma state line, about 37 miles east of Tahlequah [OK].

    Reports from Bentonville, Ark. [home of WalMart], were that debris and street signs were found there from Cincinnati, which is about 30 miles southwest of Bentonville, [NWS meteorologist Chuck Hodges] said.

    Apparently South St. Louis County was hit pretty bad, too. My mom and dad's house was hit (they're fine, thank God.)
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.

    Same storm system:

    Sheriff: Storm kills 2nd in Mo.; death toll at 5

    Kansas City, Mo. Authorities say a second resident of a southeast Missouri mobile home destroyed by a powerful storm system that spawned tornadoes has died.

    Dent County Sheriff Rick Stallings says the second woman killed during the Friday storm was related to the first. He says their home was one of three mobile homes and a barn that were leveled by the storm.

    One of the women died at the scene and the second died later at a hospital.

    slightly off topic but 2010 has been quite an unusual year it seems to me with weather and natural disasters.

    I think 2011 will bring more of the same.

    Here in Indiana we've had more tornadic activity in 2010 than I have seen in YEARS. I've been in the basement several times this year, which is unusual.

    Just learned tornado hit a town a little ways up the road, Lake Petersburg. Thankful their was no reported loss of life or major injury but some property damage. Very odd weather indeed the last few years. Or maybe I am just older and less self involved? Hmm, hadn't thought of that, maybe I am just noticing it more?
