On the way home from the chase trip we (Patrick Cool & myself) made a detour and passed through Stuttgart Arkansas. The SPC report read "damage on south side of town" so we did not expect to see much, plus the tornado damage was already a week old. Well we were in for a surprise! After passing a few damaged homes we made our way to the south side of the town which was severely damaged. Fortunately there are no known fatalities reported with this specific tornado and the towns main source of revenue which is a giant grain plant was not damaged.

The damage was a good mix of F1 and F2 winds with the Sherwin-Williams paint store and another un-identifiable building showing F3 damage. The NWS rated the tornado an EF-3.
