Default Tornado killed at least 12

12 Killed by Tornadoes as Monstrous Storms Lash Plains

A rash of severe thunderstorms accompanied by deadly tornadoes and hail was raking Americas midsection Sunday, claiming lives in Arkansas and Oklahoma.

Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe confirmed on Twitter Sunday that there were 11 fatalities in his state.

Earlier in the day, one person was killed by a twister that hit the small Oklahoma town of Quapaw, the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department said.

Tornadoes were also reported in Kansas, Nebraska and Missouri, and golf-ball sized hail rained down in some areas.

The tornado that hit Quapaw, which has about 900 residents, devastated the north side of town, The Weather Channel reported. The fire station and numerous other building were destroyed.

A large tornado that touched down west of Little Rock, Ark., damaged property along a 30-mile route and remained on the ground late into the evening.


Television footage shows damaged vehicles along a road north of state capital Sunday and trees that were stripped of their leaves and small branches along Interstate 40 between the suburbs of Maumelle and Mayflower.

Major damage was reported in the Little Rock suburb of Mayflower with roofs seen ripped off homes.

One witness, Tom Marsh, said a suburban road called the Vilonia Bypass "looks like a war zone" after the tornado, Jim Cantore of The Weather Channel reported on Twitter.


There were no immediate official reports of injuries in the Little Rock area but emergency crews were rushing to damaged areas.

Nearby Pulaski County also reported tornado devastation with homes completely destroyed and trees and powerlines down, the sheriff's office said.

Search and rescue crews were on the scene going through rubble to determine if anyone had been injured or killed.

Ferndale seemed to be the town with most damage, the sheriff's office said.


Authorities in the southeast Kansas town of Baxter Springs said several people were injured by a tornado that also caused extensive property damage.

Jason Allison, Cherokee County's emergency manager, said the tornado was estimated to be about three blocks wide and running southwest to northeast of Baxter Springs. Sixty to 70 homes and 20-25 businesses were reported destroyed.

Search and rescue efforts were underway late Sunday.

Numerous roofs and outbuilding sustained damage across the Plains, including a metal roof that was torn off a barn near Chepta, in Craig County, Oklahoma, reported Dr. Greg Forbes, severe weather expert at the Weather Channel.

Storm season is here again. My friend "just" had a new house built (below) as his old one was destroyed in the Moore, Oklahoma tornado last year. People are gonna have to start building underground cities in this part of the country if these changing weather patterns get any worse. Areas are beginning to get hit on a regular basis that were not in the past.

My heart goes out to all those in these storms and that have lost a home or a loved one. Mother Nature can be so mean sometimes. :-(
