Two upper level waves will interact with a warm and very moist air mass to generate thunderstorms through Saturday. Lightning and torrential rainfall that could cause flash flooding are the primary threats...with a secondary threat of damaging winds. Turn around, don't drown!
MAYFLOWER, Ark. (AP) - A state official says a massive tornado that passed through or near several northern suburbs of Little Rock killed at least one person.
Brandon Morris, a spokesman for the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management, says that White County officials reported to the state that at least one person was killed by the tornado as it passed through their county.
The tornado was one of several to touch down Sunday as a strong storm system moved through the central and southern U.S.
Authorities in Ottawa County, Oklahoma, say a twister that struck the town of Quapaw on Sunday only killed one person, not the two they earlier reported. Sheriff's dispatcher Kelli Soechs declined to explain the discrepancy.
That tornado injured six people in Quapaw and destroyed homes in Baxter Springs, Kan.
