3/21/2013 Northeast, Arkansas Winter Storm Footage

Two-Part Video Package containing daytime and nighttime footage.

TRT – 5:33

Heavy snow fell in areas not use to seeing snow, especially this late in the season! Snow up to half a foot fell across portions of northeast Arkansas on Thursday making a mess of roads and doubling the season snow totals with just this one storm in many areas. A few areas saw nearly half their annual average with this storm. Winter Storm Warnings were posted ahead of time for this rare event.

PART 1 (daytime) – Corning, Arkansas (0:00-2:20)

Video package opens with moderate snow falling at the "Welcome to Arkansas" sign just north of Corning. Several shots of the sign with snow falling as well as a "Arkansas" sign at the rest area just inside state lines.

Various shots follow of snow falling in Corning as the storm got going across northeast Arkansas just before dark. Various shots of traffic in the snow as well as people in the snow. B-roll of heavy snow falling in front of trees.
