Storm Destroys Homes in Boone County


BOONE COUNTY, Ark. — Several homes in Boone County, just east of Bergman were damaged by the severe storm that swept through the area. Large trees were uprooted and power lines were downed.

Dustin Hefner’s house was hit pretty hard. He says he would have been celebrating two years in the home tomorrow, but now he’s just grateful that he and his three other family members were not home when the storm came through.

“The back end of the house is gone. 90-percent of the roof is pretty gone and all but a few trees. But, it can all be,” said Hefner. 

Hefner says he plans to report the damage to the insurance agencies to see what happens. But, for right now, he just wants to get his family to a place where they can get some rest and be safe — because more severe storms are in the forecast.
