  • Bull Shoals Boat Dock Damage It was an uneventful night on July 31st when a violent thunderstorm suddenly struck the Twin Lakes Area, knocking out power to thousands of people in a five-county area and damaging a major commercial marina located on nearby Bull Shoals Lake. A KTLO reporter who was working late was able to contact personnel with two major electrical utilities, as well as the police chief for the town of Bull Shoals and an employee of the marina who had been caught in the storm. The storm, which turned out to be an unusual phenomena known as a microburst, destroyed several of the docks and tossed around hundreds of boats, but the extent of much of the damage was not known until daylight the next day.

  • Storm downs trees, blocks road A small but powerful thunderstorm that was undetected by the National Weather Service hit an area of northern Baxter County near the Missouri border the night of July 19th. Initial reports from authorities and 911 personnel indicated scattered power outages but no damage or injuries as a result of the storm. However, very early the next morning, damage reports from residents in the rural, northern part of the county and the adjoining county in Missouri began to sift in and a KTLO reporter spoke with one of those residents who witnessed the damage, utility representatives, and a sheriff's office dispatcher, as well as members of the station's weather watcher system, to gather information that was aired on a 7 a.m. newscast.

Immediately after the storm, reporter Richard Hester was able to interview a resident of the mobile home park and spoke with the county sheriff and personnel at the county 911 operations center who provided details of the incident for a story that aired the next morning on KTLO's 7 a.m. newscast.

  • Nabors Defaults on Bonds This story filed by KTLO reporter Ray Dean Davis on October 23rd is one of dozens of stories the station has broadcast over several years regarding the Nabors Landfill and Hauling situation. The landfill, located in northern Baxter County, was a privately-owned facility that a number of years ago was purchased by a quasi-governmental solid waste district comprised of six counties. The landfill is in an area that features karst geography in an environmentally sensitive region that is home to two large Corps of Engineers impoundments, Bull Shoals and Norfork Lakes, as well as a world-famous trout fishery, the White River, that generate significant tourism. Over several years, the district was unable to get the state environmental regulatory agency to approve numerous engineering plans for mandated remediation required at the landfill. That, coupled with several counties opting to haul their waste to other landfills, created a crisis that ultimately caused the district to default on bonds issued for the purchase of the landfill--the first time a public entity defaulted on bonds in Arkansas in modern times. The landfill and hauling operation has now ceased operations, but the district does not have the finances to properly close and monitor the landfill. Since this story was filed, the state has now filed a lawsuit against the district, but concerns about the landfill's impact on the local environment continue.
