According to the News-Leader, a tornado with a strength measured at the Enhanced Fujita Scale minimum EF-0 touched down at Table Rock State Park marina. The structural damage was limited to a few metal roof panels on docks, according to the marina. Some vessels sustained minor damage, but no boats were sunk or seriously damaged.
