Severe storms and a possible tornado hit north Arkansas overnight Monday with damages shutting down the post office in Parthenon. Several homes and vehicles across the region were also damaged but there are no reports of injuries or death at this time.
In a press release the US Postal Service says a tornado has closed the office in the Ozark hamlet for the time being. The National Weather Service is still determining whether a tornado touched down.
Until operations are restored, the Postal Service is directing mail a few miles north to Jasper along the Buffalo National River.
