5th injury attributed to severe storms in Arkansas

Posted: Updated:

HORSESHOE BEND, Ark. (AP) - A fifth injury is being attributed to severe storms that passed through Arkansas on Wednesday.

Dave Emerson with the Horseshoe Bend Police Department says a woman suffered a broken leg when the storms moved through the area in north-central Arkansas. Emerson tells Mountain Home radio station KTLO (http://is.gd/TIbzw7 ) that most of the damage was concentrated around the Crown Lake area of Horseshoe Bend.

Police say several homes were damaged and a number of boats on the lake were upended.

The National Weather Service is surveying areas Thursday to determine whether tornadoes or strong winds caused damage.

Four people suffered minor injuries in Van Buren County, where 30 homes were damaged.
