‘THV in Your Town’ feature: Pine Bluff

PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - I spent the day visiting Pine Bluff, walking around and going to different visitor centers. Before I visited the area, I posted on Facebook that I was going to Pine Bluff (See original post: http://on.kthv.com/1jbwVrA). Based on some comments left by folks there, I half-expected to find a city in shambles, with decrepit buildings and sporting a mere shadow of a by-gone era. I was pleasantly surprised to find exactly the opposite.

NOAA to survey possible Thurs. night storm damage


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Representatives with NOAA will travel to an area north of Russellville to survey any possible damage from Thursday night's storms.

John Robinson with the National Weather Service said they will leave early afternoon Friday.

He said the signature on radar Thursday night was what is known as a "bookend vortex". This is a bowed-out line of thunderstorms with a curled up echo on the top that looks much like a scorpion's tail.

Robinson said tornadoes sometimes occur with a bookend vortex and typically last only a short time. He said if there is any tornado damage, the path is expected to be short.

He said on rare occasions, a bookend vortex can produce a tornado at the bottom of the bowed-out line of storms. When these occur, they rotate clockwise, rather than the counterclockwise rotation that is seen with more than 99 percent of all tornadoes.

This Saturday, May 10, 2014, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) joins forces with the Arkansas Foodbank, United Way, the AARP Foundation and others to help Stamp Out Hunger in Little Rock and throughout Arkansas.  Letter carriers will fan out across the nation to pick up donated food on doorsteps and beside mailboxes as they deliver the mail.

The Stamp Out Hunger food drive, held annually on the second Saturday in May, has become the nation’s largest single-day food drive benefitting Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, and its network of food banks. Last year’s drive brought in 74 million pounds of food and provided assistance to the millions of Americans struggling to put food on the table.
