Man looks back at tornado to mark 10 year anniversary of storm

VAN BUREN COUNTY, AR (KAIT/KARK) - A tornado devastated the community of Damascus ten years ago during a tornado outbreak on May 2.

According to Little Rock NBC affiliate KARK, several tornadoes struck Arkansas on that day.

An EF-3 tornado swept across Sam Hutto's pasture in Damascus.

He and his family huddled under stairs in his garage.

"It was the safest place we had," Hutto said.

Looking at old pictures brings back bad memories for Hutto.

His home only suffered minor damage, but his family was without power for two weeks.
