One Tornado was in Union Parish and the others in Union county Arkansas. The National Weather Service spent the day surveying the area.

"They finally realized when they saw the screen flying in the air that they needed to seek shelter. They felt the house shaking and they were scared."

Stacey Mooney's kids were home at the time. The National Weather Service says the tornado which uprooted these trees was likely an EF-1 with sustained winds of 86-110 miles per hour.

"There was a south wind blowing into the storm therefore it was causing these trees to fall in a south to north orientation," Said Michael Berry, the Senior Meteorologist for The National Weather Service.

This is one of many Tornadoes that touched down on Saturday. There was an EF-1 in Jena, an EFO-0 in Union Parish, an EF-1 in Larson, and of course the EF-1 in El Dorado.

There were no reported fatalities.
