Storms bring damage to Region 8

Jonesboro, AR (KAIT)- Strong storms Friday afternoon, packing heavy rains and strong winds roared through Jonesboro. Several trees were knocked down near the YMCA including one in Burr Swann's yard. 

Swann says "We were quite lucky because you see (pointing to his driveway) there was a car parked here and the tree fell and missed it a few feet". Swann says he and his wife were out to dinner when the storm came through. He says they feel very lucky that the tree didn't hit their house.
