Tornado watch is in effect for much of the Arklatex this evening, but Shreveport Bossier is not included.

Severe weather continues to roll through our region. A new tornado watch is now in effect for a large part of the region. This watch is in effect for most of Northwest Louisiana including Bienville, Claiborne, Desoto, Jackson, Lincoln, Natchitoches, Red River, Sabine, Webster and Winn Parishes. The torndado watch is in effect until 11pm. It also includes Columbia County in SW Arkansas and Nacogdoches, Sabine, San Augustine and Shelby counties in NE Texas. Most of the heavy storms have cleared out of the Shreveport Bossier metro.

KATV in Little Rock posted some dramatic video of the storm from earlier on Wednesday.
