MARION COUNTY, AR - Damage totals in the millions in Marion County from the Dec. 5-6 winter storm.

The hardest hit businesses were poultry (turkey) producing houses. About a dozen of the houses collapsed, killing tens of thousands of birds.

Emergency officials also report that several other business buildings caved in, dozens of houses had water damage due to ice dams on the roof causing water to leak inside, and all three school districts in the county had awning collapses and water leaks. 

Damage was also reported at the Y'All Come Cowboy Church.
