As of 11 a.m., Sebastian County is reporting 748 customers without power. Some have experienced an outage, been restored and are without yet again. Crews with Arkansas Valley Electric Cooperative, OG&E Electric and Southwestern Electric Power are working to restore service in the county.
In addition to the interruption in service, others in the area have received property damage due to high winds. Spotty rain showers remain in the forecast throughout the day, but the chance for severe weather has dissipated.
