Monday’s unprecedented winter storm which hit all four corners of Arkansas continues to affect municipal services and schools in counties around the state, including Faulkner County. And with the likelihood that more winter weather will arrive on Wednesday, service impacts and closures are sure to continue to be a concern in the days ahead.

The Log Cabin has compiled a list of the most recent closures in Faulkner County that were announced by an early press deadline. LCD staff will continue to update closings at thecabin.net. As a public service, the Log Cabin has temporarily removed its paywall so anyone can read and share the content.

The LCD will strive to ensure papers are delivered to subscribers when possible. If conditions become so dire the Post Office is unable to deliver print editions, all content – including the e-edition – will be posted to thecabin.net at midnight.
