WEBSTER PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – A Webster Parish family’s mobile home was destroyed in storms that included a likely tornado believed to have touched down east of Hwy 159 late Monday morning.
The family that lives in the home on Angi Road was not there at the time. A family dog was nearby unharmed. The area is about 20 minutes north of Minden.
Webster Parish Sheriff, Gary Sexton says crews were monitoring the storm to track it’s path direction in order to respond quickly.
“Thankfully, no injuries reported with all the damage that you can see. We’ve had two homes … two permanent structures that were also totally destroyed, and we’ve had this mobile home right here totally destroyed,” said Sexton.
The National Weather Service of Shreveport is sending a crew out to parts of that area to survey for storm damage, particularly between Minden and Dykesville along Hwy 159. Details on what they find are expected to be released Monday evening.
