Thursday (May 23) the National Weather Service will head back to Northwest Arkansas to survey more damage after they have already confirmed three tornadoes touched down here.

Wednesday, the National Weather Service determined an EF-1 tornado touched down in the Rocky Branch area near Beaver Lake.

The National Weather Service also determined another EF-1 tornado hit the rural areas south of Siloam Springs in northwest Washington County during Monday’s storm.

Another team confirmed an EF-0 tornado struck LeFlore County during Monday’s storms damaging Cameron and Poteau Oklahoma.

Steven Piltz said he plans on surveying Siloam Springs Thursday.

“We have seen some social media pictures of some clouds that looked like funnel clouds but at the same time, when some of the folks have been up in the air looking, they don`t think the pattern looks necessarily like a tornado,” Piltz said. “We will have to look at it closer.”

Piltz said his team will then make their way to Carroll County to survey damage there.
