Storm Surveyors to Examine Damage in North Arkansas

National Weather Service in Little Rock also sending teams to Lincoln County and Garland County over the weekend.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - Storm surveyors are still examining damage from Wednesday's severe weather.

Today, teams with the National Weather Service (NWS) in Little Rock will be going to the area between Newnata and Mountain View (Red Door area) in Stone County.

That's where the NWS says damage was reported and radar suggested that a tornado could have struck.

After that survey, the teams will be going to Mt. Olive and Horseshoe Bend in Izard County and a small area near Viola in Fulton County.

On Saturday, the storm surveyors plan to go to Garrett Bridge in Lincoln County. The NWS says it's received numerous calls and e-mails about the damage there but didn't have enough employees available to go to every damage scene immediately after Wednesday's storms. The Arkansas Department of Emergency Management says five homes were destroyed in Lincoln County and two others were damaged.

On Sunday, the NWS is going to check the area around Lake Ouachita State Park in Garland County.

On Thursday, NWS storm surveyors spent the day in Van Buren County and Conway County.
