Video and pics: Bossier Sheriff discusses fatal storm


A confirmed EF-2 tornado ripped through Bossier Parish early Saturday morning, killing two.

The storm claimed the lives of an elderly couple and destroyed their home on the 400 block of Davis Road.

From drone footage, it appears the path of the tornado started near Davis Road and Arkla Plant Road and traveled east/northeast, hopping from the air to the ground in its path.

Strong winds also ripped the roof off of a portion of Benton Middle School, and knocked down trees and utility lines across the parish.
