MAYFLOWER, Ark. (AP) - Storm surveyors with the National Weather Service are headed to the Mayflower area to determine the strength of the powerful tornado that devastated parts of Faulkner County.

National Weather Service warning coordination meteorologist John Robinson says two teams will begin surveying the storm damage Monday morning. Robinson says both teams will start at Mayflower, with one heading southwest and one heading northeast toward Vilonia.

Robinson says it’s unlikely the survey team will complete the entire track of the storm Monday, so the weather service may not be able to determine the tornado’s EF rating until Tuesday or later.

The tornado that hit Vilonia in 2011 was an EF2.
