FORDYCE, Ark. (AP, abc24.com) - The National Weather Service says no injuries or deaths were reported when high winds and suspected tornadoes struck the state Sunday night.
Meteorologist B.J. Simpson says the most significant damage in the state was about 4 miles northeast of Fordyce, where houses were damaged and trees and power lines were knocked down. The weather service sent a team out Monday to determine whether it was a tornado or high winds that caused the damage.
The Arkansas Department of Emergency Management says about 15 to 20 homes in Fordyce sustained moderate to major damage.
Simpson says the system that produced the suspected tornado near Fordyce had strong rotation for about 120 miles across the southeastern part of the state.
Entergy Arkansas says more than 3,600 customers were without power midday Monday.
