Weather Service Assessing Possible Tornado Damage in Arkansas

March 15, 2016

The National Weather Service is sending investigators to assess damage and determine if tornadoes touched down in Arkansas as a fast-moving storm system brought rain and hail across the state.

Meteorologist Michael Brown says it’s believed three to five tornadoes touched down in the state Sunday night. He said investigators are being sent to Winfield in Scott County, Mount Ida in Montgomery County and to Grady in Lincoln County and that at least two of the reported twisters were captured on video.

Brown said that no injuries or deaths are reported, but that seven or eight homes were damaged and one was destroyed near Winfield and docks were damaged at the Mountain Harbor Resort and Spa near Mount Ida.

Entergy Arkansas reported nearly 3,300 power outages early Monday morning.
