Tornado damage?

Any one have any damage from the storms and tornados last night? My part of the state lucked out, but I know that there are several members in the river valley area.

Hope and pray everyone came through without too much loss.

We made it ok, but with the talk of hail, I squeezed my truck into my dad's
shop.. I had roughly 6" clearance front and back..

No damage here on the south side either. Heard from Brian_B earlier, major damage 5 miles from him, town of Gassville leveled.

Didn't realize you were so close. I work in El Dorado quite often. Actually travel the entire state at some time during the year seems like, some 4800 miles per month.

Sure like to play golf out at the Lions course!

Yes...it was close to me. The town along the highway is gone. What a mess. They are putting in new power poles. Almost all of them were broke off or completely down. Houses, businesses, and utilites are gone.

My house and my parents are fine.

I didn't even know it was tornadoes. I was in a big brick building at my car club meeting.

It can be quite a mess. I remember in 97 when the one came through Arkadelphia, missed my house by about 3/4 mile. Tooooooooooooo close!

Glad you and yours are well!
