A line of severe storms moving across Arkansas has knocked over trees and power lines in Garland County and prompted a tornado warning in Pulaski County.

The Garland County Sheriff's Department said Thursday afternoon that trees were down near Elmwood and that power was out in part of Hot Springs.

The weather service says severe weather is expected as the storm line continues to move eastward across Arkansas. Damaging winds, hail and isolated tornadoes are possible.
