4 tornadoes hit Midlands on Sunday, damaging almost a dozen homes”

The National Weather Service has confirmed that a tornado ripped through parts of Virginia Sunday, April 15.

A tornado watch issued by the National Weather Service expired for most counties at 11 p.m., but will remain in effect for some eastern counties, including Edgecombe and Nash, until 3 a.m.

As the tornado continued into Chicot County, two sets of wooden transmission poled were found snapped and a mobile home sustained damage.

The tornado reportedly touched down in southwestern Pittsylvania County, just southwest of Old Mayfield Road.

Officials don't know the exact strength of the tornado yet and say they more surveying to do before they know just how strong this storm was.

On Monday, the weather service released its findings after a crew surveyed damage from a storm that struck late Friday night. If all of the damage seems to be unidirectional, all blown down in the same direction, they are likely to determine it was created by straight-line winds.

The preliminary report from NWS states the tornado was on the ground for less than a minute, and traveled a half a mile.

Twenty tornadoes have been reported so far this year in Arkansas, the weather service said.

To the north of Mountain Home in Baxter County, an EF-1 tornado with winds of 85- 110 miles per hour was confirmed. Minor structural damage occurred to homes, mainly roof damage.

Conway, the damage on the UCA campus is consistent with straight-line winds of 75 miles per hour.
