A viral video shows piles of debris, including hundreds of trees, at Burns Park Soccer Fields, from the Little Rock, Arkansas, tornado.

"Only 1 parking lot at the Burns Park Soccer Fields. Debris everywhere from March 31st tornado," wrote scientist Todd Yakoubian, sharing the video to his Facebook page.

"It's incredible…. The destruction a tornado can do," a person wrote in the comment thread. A woman wrote, "Should turn it into mulch, plant new trees and then spread the mulch." A man wrote, "It mostly pine wood not good for firewood it will build creosote in your chimney."

The City of Little Rock wrote in a Facebook post on April 11, 2023, "Thank you, Little Rock for helping us gather data about damage to personal property and infrastructures throughout the city that were affected by the storm. Your submissions help us craft a strategy to rebuild the #CommUNITY. The property damage assessment survey provides emergency response units with an effective tool to quickly document and map property damage across affected areas."

The City of Little Rock noted in its Facebook post, "FEMA disaster relief representatives have started going door-to-door in affected neighborhoods. Please be aware that all official FEMA representatives will have badges. Do not give any personal information to anyone without an official FEMA badge."

The City of Little Rock also made a video in another Facebook post that shows the tornado damage throughout the city in a before-and-after fashion. You can watch that video here.
