On Saturday, several Arkansan counties were rocked by devastating storms. The community in and around Dumas, in particular, was deeply affected.
A tornado damaged 80 percent of Dumas' business district and injured 27 people in the Dumas area. Another storm injured two at Urbana in Union County.
On Thursday, a violent storm system that ripped apart an Alabama high school as students hunkered inside later tore through Georgia, hitting a hospital and raising the death toll to at least 20 across the Midwest and Southeast.
On Friday, March 2nd, from 7-8 pm, the team at Action News 5 will produce a special to help raise money for those in need in these storm-ravaged areas. We will have crews reporting live from Dumas, Arkansas and around the South and will present multiple reports about the impact of the storm.
