Typhoon Sanba slammed against the South Korean coast today. The storm had 120 mile per hour winds. It landed around 6:30 am with an eye nearly half the island’s length. The infrastructure on the island is designed to withstand powerful storms since the island is in an area of the Pacific where typhoons happen often. Sanba is also expected to affect a large area with flooding. Even though the storm has weakened since Friday when it was described as a super typhoon, Sanba is a category three with winds ranging from 111 to 129 miles per hour. There have been no immediate reports of damage.

A tornado watch has been issued for parts of eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas until 6 p.m. The watch doesn’t include northwest Arkansas or northeastern Oklahoma.
Storms will intensify as they move into central Arkansas this afternoon and evening; those storms will have a chance to produce tornadoes.
Tornadoes tore through the Dallas-Fort Worth area this afternoon, tossing tractor-trailers, cancelling flights and causing widespread damage to buildings.
The National Weather Service confirmed at least two separate “large and extremely dangerous” tornadoes, according to CBS News.
One tornado was on the ground just five miles east of downtown Dallas.
Severe damage was reported in Arlington, where the mayor of the city signed a disaster declaration to help cope with the destruction.
A tornado watch remains in effect for much of north-central Texas.

The area should see a three to four hour break in snowfall after midnight, but that’s not the end of it. The storm is expected to intensify greatly and spark back up at 4 a.m. Sunday morning. By Sunday afternoon the snow will switch back over to rain. Here in Northwest Arkansas we should see a total of four to eight inches of snowfall.

Razorback Hoops’ Streak Ends at Five
Courtney Fortson scored 18 points for the Arkansas Razorback men’s basketball team on Saturday afternoon, but its winning streak was ended at five games in Tuscaloosa, Ala., as the Razorbacks fell to the Alabama Crimson Tide, 73-68. Arkansas (13-12, 6-4 SEC) was outscored in the second half for the first time in Southeastern Conference play this season after leading 38-29 at the break. Alabama (14-11, 4-7 SEC) defends its home court and splits the season series with the Razorbacks. ”Alabama played very well in the second half,” Arkansas head coach John Pelphrey said. ”We didn’t do some of the fundamental things. We are certainly disappointed. They did a good job in the second half of getting around Courtney and denying some things. They also made some good plays in the second half and hit 11 of 13 free throws.”
