Tim Porter captured these photos on the storm that Tim Oldham gave heads up on to Franklin County Emergency Services.  

 A message from 

Fred Mullins, Franklin County Emergency Coordinator:

Steve--thanks for the photos from Tim Porter.  Rick Colvert and I think that Tim Oldham did some really good spotting on this cloud.  Tim Oldham and I talked about this could on the FC fire channel--it still looked really ragged from my perspective, but it did bear watching as Tim encourged.  A little after Tim and I talked, we got a report from Gary White from his home identifying the same feature as a wall cloud forming.  We passed this info along to Madsion County spotters and Johnson County EM event before the warning was issued.

THis is another great example of multi agency cooperation to protect the citizens of at least 4 counties--Crawford, Franklin, Madison and Johnson--in Western Arkansas.

Thanks to the CC Strom Net group.
