ROGERS, Ark. (AP) - The National Weather Service has confirmed a tornado touched down in Rogers during overnight storms.

A survey team from the National Weather Service in Tulsa, Okla., surveyed the scene on Sunday. A number of businesses sustained damage, including in the Pinnacle Hills commercial area.

The weather service says radar indicated the twister touched down just after 9:30 p.m. Saturday as a wave of heavy rain and high winds buffeted the area.

No serious injuries were reported. The storm knocked down trees and power lines.

The weather service initially rated the tornado as an EF-1, meaning it would have had winds of between 86 mph and 110 mph, but forecasters later said the tornado had not yet been rated.
