Strong storms moved across Concordia Parish and Adams County early Thursday morning when National Weather Service radar indicated the possibility of a tornado in the area. Tornado warnings were issued as a result.

Edmonston said NWS investigators are expected to file a full report of the storm’s path and the resulting damage later Thursday evening.
