    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - NOAA will send out more storm survey teams over the weekend to check out damage reports after Wednesday's storms.

    Friday, a team will head out to the area between Newnata and Mountain View, in the Red Door area, in Stone County where there was damage reported and radar suggested that a tornado could have a occurred.

    After, the team will go to Mt. Olive and Horseshoe Bend in Izard County and a small area near Viola in Fulton County.

    Saturday, NOAA plans to go to Garrett Bridge in Lincoln County. They received numerous calls and emails about damage in that area. Sunday, they're going to Lake Ouachita State Park in Garland County.

    NOAA says that they don't have enough employees available to go to every damage scene the first day or so after damage occurs, especially when it is in areas that are widely separated from one another.

    Storm damage surveys could last into next week.
