MORROW, La. — A possible tornado damaged two homes, struck down multiple trees and damaged a large barn Wednesday night on LA-107 near the Morrow area, according to St. Landry Parish Government.

St. Landry Parish Government, St. Landry Parish Sheriff, Acadian Ambulance and Fire District 7 responded to the scene and cleared the route of debris. Parish Public Works is in route to clear debris from the destroyed barn.

Power is being restored to the site.
