Below is the full press release from the Northeast Louisiana Ambulance Service :

At around 1:45 a.m., Northeast Louisiana Ambulance Service (NELA), along with the Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office, Catahoula Parish Sheriff’s Office, Concordia Parish Fire Protection District 2 and other emergency personnel responded to a residence in northwestern Concordia Parish reporting injuries and extensive structure damage. Upon our arrival, we discovered significant damage to two single-wide mobile home units. One unit was no longer secured to the ground following the storm. The second unit, occupied, was flipped. We transported four patients, including minors, to an area hospital for treatment. Fortunately, their injuries were minor and not life-threatening. The National Weather Service in Jackson issued a Tornado Warning for this area and it was active at the time of the incident. NELA did not receive any other storm-related calls from our service area, which includes all of Richland, Franklin, Catahoula, Madison and Tensas Parishes.
