Tornado destroys George Elementary gym in Springdale



YEAH, WE’RE ACTUALLY JUST A COUPLE OF BLOCKS FROM GEORGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN SPRINGDALE RIGHT NOW. I WANT TO GIVE YOU A LOOK BEHIND ME. THIS IS POWELL STREET AND HATFIELD AVENUE, THE CROSS STREET RIGHT HERE. IF YOU CAN PROBABLY SEE HERE, WE’VE GOT POWER LINES THAT ARE HANGING DOWN OVER THE ROAD FIRST RESPONDERS, OF COURSE. OUT HERE WE’VE SEEN THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, WE’VE SEEN THE FIRE DEPARTMENT, WE’VE SEEN ENERGY COMPANIES HERE. IT LOOKS LIKE A PIECE OF SHEET METAL IS WHAT IS KIND OR HANGING ON TOP OF THOSE POWER LINES. AND THIS ISN’T THE ONLY DAMAGE ON POWLEL STREET FEET. I MEAN, WE’VE SEEN IT ALL THE WAY UP AND DOWN THE STREET HERE. OBVIOUSLY, TRAFFIC HAVING TO BE DIVERTED AND A LOT OF THE DIFFERENT AREAS JUST DOWN THE STREET. ON THE OTHER SIDE, WE’VE SEEN MAILBOXES DOW WN, E’VE SEEN PIECES OF SHEET METAL. I SAW A TRAMPOLINE JUST NOT FOR AWAY FROM HERE AS WELL THAT WAS BROKEN APART ACROSS THE STREET. SO TRAFFIC BEING DIVERTED. OBVIOUSLY, THE FIRST RESPONDERS OUT HERE DOING WHAT THEY CAN TO TRY TO MAKE SURE TTHA EVERYBODY IS SAFE AS THEY KIND OF COME TO THESE ROADS HERE NOW. GEORGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, LIKE I MENTIONED, IS JUST DOWN THE BLOCK FROM HERE. THE GYM THERE IS COMPLETELY DESTROYED OR LOOKS TO BE SOME DAMAGE ON SOME OF THE ROOF ON OTHER PARTS OF THE BUILDING, AS WELL. SO REALLY, JUST A BIT OF A WILD SCENE HERE IN SPRINGDALE RIGHT NOW. YOU CAN OBVIOUSLY SEE THE SHEET METAL BEHIND ME KIND OR HANGING ON THOSE POWER LINES RIGHT THERE. THERE’S SHEET METAL DOWN THE STREET. THIS WAY THERE’S MAILBOXES THAT ARE KIND OF SCATTERED ACROSS THE ROAD RIGHT NOW AS WELL. LIKE I MENTIONED, A TRAMPOLINE IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DAMAGED. SO WE’RE GOING TO BEUT O LORD. IT’S OBVIOUSLY STILL RAINING VERY HARD. FIRST RESPONDERS TRYING TO KEEP EVERYBODY SAFE HERE. BUT FOR NOW, WE’RE GOING TO SEND IT BACK TO DARBY IN ETH STUDIO. ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU SO MUCH. CALL
