Business owner finds store damage after strong storms

CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Thursday night's severe weather left its mark across Region 8.

The line of storms brought large hail to the area.

“It just happens,” said Michael Hinkle.

The storms damaged his business.

The awning at Can-Am in Jonesboro was ripped to pieces and parts of the roof were blown off.

“A lot of damage,” Hinkle said. “A lot of water inside. Stuff scattered everywhere.”

The store is just of Highway 1 in Craighead County and this isn't the first time weather has affected Hinkle's building plans.

He said rain and snow already delayed the construction.

“We'll have to rebuild,” Hinkle said.

They are now waiting for the insurance company to come and assess the damage before they can figure out what comes next for the store.
