National Weather Service confirms tornado in Baxter County in Friday's storms

Two tornadoes tore up trees and ripped apart homes in Greensboro and Reidsville, North Carolina, killing a motorist who was hit by a tree, according to Greensboro's city manager, local media reported.

The Amherst County Sheriff's Office urged residents not to travel to Elon, saying any unnecessary traffic would hamper response efforts.

An EF-0 tornado, with estimated winds between 65 and 85 miles per hour, touched down Friday night in Oppelo in Conway County. The tornado moved along Highway 30 to the east and north of Oxford.

One of the EF2 tornadoes was in Crawford County, near Mountainburg, where Gov. Asa Hutchinson toured Sunday to survey the damage.

The tornadoes largely occurred in rural or uninhabited places, lessening the damage. Weaker tornadoes like EF0 or EF1 tend to do light to moderate damage like peeling up roofs, broken branches, overturning mobile homes, and windows and glass broken. Several cars were overturned.

The National Weather Service out of Jackson, MS submitted survey results on Sunday confirming three tornadoes in far South Arkansas.

The weight of ice on power lines, coupled with high winds, caused more than 1,000 power lines to fall in Detroit and Wayne County, DTE said. The damage forced officials to cancel classes at all schools in Guilford County. That included minor damage to single-family houses and chicken house roofs that were blown away entirely.

It was issued until 7:15 p.m. On top of the tornadoes we also had over 150 reports of large hail and thunderstorm wind damage as well.

Single EF-1 tornadoes were reported in Gamaliel in Baxter County; Lavaca in Sebastian and Franklin counties; Ozone in Johnson County; and Umpire in Howard County.
