Two EF-1 Tornadoes Confirmed in Johnson and Franklin Counties

The National Weather Service would like to express honest gratitude to the EMA from Pittsylvania County and the City of Danville, as well as the Pittsylvania County Office of Public Safety.

The high end EF2 tornado had maximum winds speeds of 130 miles per hour and had a 20.4-mile-long path length.

The National Weather Service out of Jackson, MS submitted survey results on Sunday confirming three tornadoes in far South Arkansas. However, if the damage on either side of the damage path is blown down in one direction on the left side and the opposite direction on the other side of the path, it's likely it was a tornado that caused the damage.

Stay with CBS 6 for the latest on this developing story. The tornado traveled 20 miles from Timberlake, to Lynchburg, to Elon.

Irvin: Dez Bryant was 'fighting' people trying to help him
First-round bust Breshad Perriman can't be counted on, and Chris Moore has 25 receptions in two National Football League seasons. A three-time Pro Bowler, Bryant appeared in all 16 games a season ago, catching 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns.

"They will look at the pattern of the damage to determine whether it was a real tornado or just strong winds", Meteorologist Stephanie Sine said. Several limbs were also snapped from trees.

The weather service estimated Sunday's tornado was on the ground in Craig County for less than a minute but it damaged about a half-dozen homes, flipped a truck over onto another auto, and felled around 50 trees. But, as the storm moved over them, they did record a 67mph wind gust.

The NWS has the final say on whether or not the damage was tornadic in nature or was done by straight-line winds. Several businesses sustained heavy damage and a nursing home lost part of its roof and had to be evacuated. Different wind speeds have a tendency to produce varying amounts of damage to distinct structures.
