AROUND ARKANSAS-- With The Natural State getting hit with a one-two punch of severe weather last week, the clean up begins.

Falling trees took out transmission lines cutting power to 10,000 homes in Maumelle alone. On Sunday, Entergy sent in a special piece of equipment to help clean up the mess.

It's called a helicopter air saw. It's basically a giant ten-blade saw dangling from a helicopter. It helps cut trees away from power lines in difficult-to-access areas. So far, it's working. Crews hope to continue using it on Monday.
