Weather forecasters confirmed two weak tornadoes touched down in Logan County on Sunday as powerful storms passed through the state.
Jim Reynolds, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in North Little Rock, said Monday a damage survey showed two EF-0 tornadoes touched down just southeast of Paris early Sunday morning.
Both tornadoes traveled one-tenth of a mile on the ground, causing tree upheaval and damaging the porch of a mobile home, Reynolds said.
"An EF-0 is the weakest tornado that can occur," Reynolds said. "It wasn't so much the speed of the wind but the damage that was done that showed it was tornadoes."
Twenty-four tornadoes have been reported as touching down in Arkansas this year.
"We usually see 33 tornadoes in the average year," Reynolds said.
