Damage in Elkins, Arkansas, from storms Friday night (Nov. 30).

ELKINS (KFSM) — The severe storms left behind a lot of damage in parts of Northwest Arkansas on Friday (Nov. 30) night.

In Elkins,  powerful winds toppled trees and leveled barns and sheds.

Lindsay Watt said as soon as her family heard the threatening storm brewing,  they immediately took cover.

“Basically the noise from the storm is what made us go get in the safe room that we have. We don’t have a basement, so we went and got in the closet and took shelter. It sounded like the roof was going to be ripped off,” said Watt.

Damage was reported throughout Northwest Arkansas, though much of it was centered in western parts of Benton and Washington counties.

Storm damage was also reported at Hickory Creek Marina near Rogers on Beaver Lake, where a boat dock was blown up and over several boats.
