Scattered reports of fallen trees, varying wind damage and power outages throughout the county came on the tail of overnight storms as the sun rose on Tuesday morning.
Chris Buonanno, science and operations officer with the National Weather Service out of Little Rock, said wind gusts up 55 miles-per-hour were recorded in Central Arkansas between midnight and 12:30 a.m.
Heavy rain is currently moving into Central Arkansas, and NWS is watching the same system for additional thunderstorms capable of producing tornadoes. That risk is greater for areas of southern Arkansas, Buonanno reported.
According to Entergy spokeswoman Julie Munsell, workers are currently trying to restore power to some 256 customers in Faulkner County.
The estimated time of restoration for power outages in Vilonia, Mayflower, the Pickles Gap area and Hwy. 225 near Bono is 10 p.m. Tuesday.
Restoration times could change as damage assessments are completed or if other storm activity results in additional outages, Entergy officials said.

The streets were cleared and the unit was back in service just after 7 a.m., Winter said.
County Judge Allen Dodson reported multiple trees down on King's Highway, off of Highway 64. The road should be clear soon, he said.
