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 National Weather Service out of Jackson, MS submitted survey results on Sunday confirming three tornadoes in far South Arkansas.

A tornado hit the western part of Danville on Sunday, and continued through Pittsylvania County. The tornado damaged a mobile home and uprooted trees as it crossed James road and Ridge road. Several limbs were also snapped from trees.

The storm tracked to the north, damaging trees, a barn and several homes before crossing Sadie Drive, where homes sustained minor damage to siding and roofs, the National Weather Service said. If all of the damage seems to be unidirectional, all blown down in the same direction, they are likely to determine it was created by straight-line winds.
