The National Weather Service said Sunday that Little Rock had the highest recorded gust at 47 miles per hour. Gusts of 44 miles per hour were recorded in Pine Bluff, 43 miles per hour in Stuttgart, and Russellville had gusts clocked at 41 miles per hour.
Entergy Arkansas worked Sunday to repair downed power lines in 28 counties. The greatest concentration of outages was in Pulaski County, where 13 hundred customers were without power.
