Surveyors confirm nine tornadoes in Arkansas from weekend storm

Surveyors confirm nine tornadoes in Arkansas from weekend storm

On Monday, the weather service released its findings after a crew surveyed damage from a storm that struck late Friday night.

Police said 48-year-old Anthony George of Greensboro was killed about 5:45 p.m. Sunday when a tree fell on his auto.

Severe storms have blown down trees, caused airport delays and knocked out power to tens of thousands in North and SC.

The tornado reached speeds of 90 mph traveling more than six miles down Lakeland Road, starting at Jackson Prep and ending just past the Mill Creek subdivision north of Brandon.

Officials say heavy snow caused part of a hotel roof to collapse in northeastern Wisconsin, but no one was hurt.

About 33,000 Consumers Energy customers and 125,000 DTE customers were without power by noon Sunday in MI due to damaged power lines. Last season the area got 31.9 inches of snow.




The National Weather Service says the 14.9 inches at Minneapolis airport from Friday through Sunday set a new record for the largest April snowstorm ever there.

What, 15 inches of snow wasn't enough?

Despite snow on Saturday, Hays has still only received.07 inches of moisture for the month.

The weather is being blamed for cancelling flights at Gerald R. Ford International, tipping a Coopersville Firetruck onto its side and injuring four firefighters, shutting down the Mackinac Bridge because of high winds, and suspending operations of Enbridge's Line 5 oil pipeline because of 12 foot waves.

The storm system prompted Enbridge Energy to temporarily shutter twin oil and gas pipelines in MI that may have been recently damaged by a ship anchor strike.
