Webster Parish Storm Damage [PHOTOS]

Webster Parish sheriff’s deputies have located what appears to be paths mowed down by a probable tornado from last night’s storm. The Sheriff’s Office reports the towns of Heflin and Dubberly, and surrounding areas, suffered the hardest blows from the storm, leaving dozens of homes damaged. Near the Nursery Road area in Dubberly, to Highway 531 just north of the center of town, visible areas of cleared and twisted trees leave deputies to believe that this was the mark of a tornado. Nursery Road in Dubberly remains closed due to downed power lines and debris. Multiple state and parish roadways are passable, but still awaiting cleanup from fallen trees and limbs. Thousands of parish residents remain without power.  Above photos show storm damage in Heflin.

Meantime, a Webster Parish reserve deputy is undergoing surgery at LSU Hospital following a wreck last night, where his patrol vehicle struck a tree during the storm while assisting in the Sarepta area. And a parish patrol captain was remarkably uninjured following a wreck last night, when his patrol vehicle hit high water and rolled while traveling on U.S. 371 near Dixie Inn. Both deputies had to be rescued from their units following the wrecks.
