A deadly tornado hit several small communities in five counties (Faulkner, Pulaski, White, Independence and Jackson) in Central Arkansas on its Southwest-Northeast tract that is only 10 to 30 miles Northwest of Little Rock, state’s capitol.
Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe said he wouldn’t be surprised if it was one of the highest category tornadoes. It is too early to estimate the total amount of damage according to him. Beebe spoke highly of county and city officials saying they have done a great job in their search and rescue efforts.
President Obama has called Beebe along with the Director of Homeland Security to express their condolences for those lost in the tornadoes.
30 people died and over 200 people injured. Tens of homes have been destroyed while many more damaged in a matter of minutes during the evening hours on Sunday. Tornado warning sirens were heard all around the city of Little Rock on Sunday.
