We have been in contact with representatives of Entergy and Woodruff. They are working to get power back on throughout the county and will continue til the project is completed. At the Sheriff's Department we still do not have non-emergency phones working but 9-1-1 is fully operational. May God keep those working safe and secure as our county recovers from the damage from the bad weather last night.

There is extensive damage from Colt to Caldwell to Forrest City as a result of the storm / tornado that came through around Midnite. Crews are clearing roads at this time. Electrical lines are down in many areas and crews have dealt with trees falling on houses. One person has been taken to the hospital that we know of so far but we are diligently traveling the county roads to check on as many people as possible. Many roads in Forrest City are completely blocked by large trees and power poles being down. At least one hangar was lost at the Regional Airport at Colt. County Road 236 has several trees down and power lines down in multiple locations. Hwy 306 has trees down on it but crews are working right now and hope to have them out of the way in a short while. SFC 735 has limbs and trees down but is passable. Buildings in Colt and Caldwell have lost their roofs as well as damage to buildings along Hwy 1 just north of FC. Hwy 261 at Caldwell is closed due to several trees being down. It will be closed until power lines can be repaired/removed so workers can get to the trees that have to be moved. Many county roads in the area hit by the storm have limbs and trees down but most are passable. St Francis County Emergency Management and area fire departments are out in force helping clear roads and assess damage. The non-emergency phones are out at the Sheriff's Office but 9-1-1 is still operational. We received word that Mayor Bryant has opened the Forrest City Civic Center as an Emergency Shelter for those affected by the damage from the storm and those with medical conditions needing electricity for their medical equipment. 2:23 AM- County Judge Gary Hughes has issued a verbal Declaration of Emergency for St Francis County
