LRAFB History Fast Fact

Little Rock Air Force Base experienced an EF-2 tornado April 25, 2011. The cyclone carved a five-mile path from North Pulaski High School, straight through the base housing area and across the flightline. The storm damaged and destroyed homes, C-130s, and other base facilities but injured only four people, none of them seriously. The strength of the 56-year relationship between the base and the community was demonstrated as local mayors and civic leaders arrived within 30 minutes to offer their support. The storm did not delay operations. Even with power still out in many facilities, planes and Airmen deployed to support the war in Iraq less than three days after the tornado struck.
