Tornado tears through neighborhoods in Arkansas


Severe storms woke up residents of Springdale, Arkansas during the early morning hours on Wednesday when what is believed to be an EF-3 tornado tore through town. 

Several businesses and homes were destroyed as the twister traveled over five miles through neighborhoods. Drone footage shows bedrooms open to the sky because the roofs and walls no longer exist.

FOX Weather’s Robert Ray arrived just after sunrise and found a warehouse the size of a football field twisted and ruined and trucks toppled.

The terror experienced in Arkansas was similar to what residents saw in St. Joseph, Missouri just the day before.

The National Weather Service believes an EF-1 tornado peeled the roof off a home.

Mississippi saw the brunt of the system with more than a dozen Tornado Warnings issued in the state on Wednesday.

FOX Weather was just a block from the Governor’s home and had to take shelter from the nearby storm.
