Deadly Weekend Twisters in the Midwest. Forecasters Predict Worst May Be Yet to Come
Deadly tornadoes ripped through part of the Midwest over the weekend including a wide swath from Arkansas to Iowa. 18 people have been killed in the aftermath of at least 31 tornadoes leaving a path of destruction and destroyed homes along the way.
One person was killed and two injured in Keokuk County, Iowa when a twister touched down and caused extensive property damage.
A suburb of Little Rock Arkansas was one of the hardest hit areas when a half-mile wide tornado touched down Sunday afternoon.
According to reports by NBC News, witnesses say the sky turned “completely black” before turning houses and businesses into a “pile of matchsticks.”
Forecasters say the worst may yet come as the tornado threat remains high for across Mississippi, northwest Alabama and the western half of Tennessee.
