Sunday night County Judge Allen Dodson recapped the path of the storm and made note of the fact that it knocked out 85 percent of Vilonia's retail tax base. Beyond the monetary costs, he shared a personal loss.
"We had 11 deaths. These are our people. Our Families. Our Friends. I personally knew one. We can never lose sight of that no matter how much progress we make, and we've made a bunch of progress," he said.
Dodson said 855 homes sustained some kind of damage there. Of those, the storm destroyed 418. He also said 5,000 volunteers poured into the county.
