Faulkner County: EF4 tornado destroyed 328 homes
VILONIA, Ark. (AP) - Leaders in Faulkner County say a preliminary assessment shows that 328 homes were destroyed in Sunday's tornado.
Faulkner County Attorney David Hogue says 710 homes have been assessed so far after the EF4 tornado hit the county. Along with the destroyed homes, the assessment also found 111 homes with major damage, 231 homes with minor damage and 40 homes otherwise affected.
Those numbers are preliminary as assessments continue in the county.
Donations have poured into the county following the deadly tornado. The county says no bottled water is needed and is requesting that people donate gift cards rather than clothing for people affected by the storm.
Fifteen people were killed statewide in the tornado, with 11 of those deaths occurring in Mayflower and Vilonia.Copyright 2014 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
