Tornado damage clean up continues in Fort Smith


Residents in the River Valley continue to clean the mess left behind by five EF-1 tornadoes.

One of the hardest hit neighborhoods was Cliff Drive in Fort Smith.

Homeowner Adam Speck and his family were in Northwest Arkansas when Saturday’s tornadoes hit.

Even though trees are on top of his house, Speck says he feels lucky.

“It looks like we’re going to lose 32 trees in our yard total. 14 are uprooted completely, and only two of them fell on the house. So you know what, that’s pretty good. We’re pretty happy, pretty blessed,” Speck says.

Speck tells us neighbors on Cliff Drive have banded together to clean up the damage.
