The Road to Recovery

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.

If you would like to make a donation to any of these people in need, you can do so by calling 1-800-Red-Cross.
