Damaging winds and a possible tornado significantly damaged a Jonesboro, Ark., self-storage facility after storms rolled through the area April 19.

R&R Mini Storage on the south side of Jonesboro began notifying tenants the next morning of roof damage to units. Upon opening units, tenants discovered water and other damage to stored items such as videotapes and photographs.

Co-owner Travis Grissom told the source the wind affected 48 units, a complete structure. The facility's other three structures of units went unscathed. The owner said the cleanup effort was underway and implied he would rebuild structures.

The storms turned north and ripped siding and roofing off buildings at a local fairgrounds. Though people reported seeing a tornado, it was not officially recorded.
