Springdale mobile home park suffers tornado damage

Residents of a mobile home park in Springdale are left to pick up the pieces after Wednesday morning's tornado ripped across the area and left homes in shambles.

SPRINGDALE, Ark. — Residents at the Woodbridge Estates Mobile home Park off Powell Street in Springdale are reporting tons of damaged homes and RVs that have been flipped on their sides.

“All of the sudden I heard the God-awful noise of what a tornado sounds like. There is no definition for it. I knew we were getting hit," said Kristy Miller, a resident of the park.

Many homes had trees fall on them with one man being trapped in his home by a tree but luckily neighbors were able to rescue him and take him to the hospital. Another man says his bedroom window was broken and a woman says the electricity going out is what warned her that something was wrong.

“It’s a devastating sight. It flipped over and went into our house and I was just thinking if the wind was a little bit stronger it maybe could have crushed us in the room but I’m glad that we are safe," said Edgar Aldco, a resident at the park.
