A severe storm late Thursday afternoon battered the south Shreveport area with hail and high winds. The brunt of the storm was centered from Interstate 49 south of the city eastward toward Ellerbe and Norris Ferrry Roads and the Southern Trace area.

Sports talk host Tim Fletcher from 1130 The Tiger took a number of photographs, plus this amazing video of the damage on and near the Southern Trace golf course.

Following the storm, SWEPCO reported over 12,000 Caddo Parish residents without power. In DeSoto Parish, just over 2,700 are in the dark and over 900 residents in Red River Parish also have no power.

In East Texas' Harrison County, where a tornado reportedly touched down in late afternoon, another 500 are without power.
