4 injured, due to lightning strike, at gas drilling site

FAULKNER COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - Four people were reportedly injured, due to a lightning strike, Thursday around 3 p.m. at a gas drilling site in Faulkner County.

Christina Fowler with Southwestern Energy said six individuals were working on a workover rig when the injuries occurred; Fowler said the injured are employed by third-party vendors and are not Southwestern Energy employees.

The workers were reportedly in a room near the rig when a lightning bolt struck the building.

Lori Ross with Conway Regional Medical Center said two of the injured were transported to that facility for treatment, while two others are being taken to Little Rock for treatment. Ross said two others who are considered "walking wounded" admitted themselves into the Conway Regional Medical Center for treatment, and Fowler told THV11 that they have since been treated and released.

Weather links to hold onto with the possibility of severe weather headed our way: 


School districts running low on snow days

CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - An unusual amount of icy weather this year caused Central Arkansas districts to close schools. While a snow day can provide some much needed rest and relaxation, too many days away from class can actually start to eat into a much anticipated summer vacation.

A snow or ice day answers the dreams of many students.

"Sleep in till eleven o'clock in the morning instead of six o'clock," said Conway High School Sophomore, Trey Smith.

This is the third day nixed by the weather for Smith and he is fine with the day off.

"Just whatever we feel like doing...going to get lunch somewhere, just do what we feel like," said Smith.

Smith, his brother and father went to Game Stop on the day off.

While students relish the moments, educators know the time will have to be made up.
