LITTLE ROCK — A third tornado touched down in Arkansas during this week’s severe weather, the National Weather Service said Thursday it has confirmed.
Meteorologist Michael Brown said an EF-1 tornado with wind speeds around 100 mph touched down about 2:15 a.m. Wednesday in northeastern Conway County, in an area east of Cleveland and north of Center Ridge.
The tornado damaged or destroyed a few structures and uprooted some trees, but no injuries were reported, he said.
Previously, the weather service confirmed that an EF-1 tornado touched down in Higginson and a stronger EF-2 tornado touched down in Kensett, both in White County, shortly after 7 p.m. Tuesday. Those tornadoes caused several injuries, damaged multiple homes and uprooted trees, but no deaths were reported.
Brown said a team from the weather service will go to Johnson and Pope counties Friday to determine whether damage there was caused by tornadoes.
