While Red River Parish residents took shelter Friday night in the midst of strong storms and numerous weather service warnings, we were pounded by hail, rain and strong winds. Area residents took the storm very seriously when the weather service warning said to take shelter, there is a debris signature on radar.
Along the path of a tornado that touched down in the parish there was a trail of destruction several miles long. Sheds, signs, power lines and many trees fell victim to the storm. Thankfully there was little heavy damaged, compared to the severity of the storm. And there were no injuries or loss of life.
