Arkansas Tornado Update

May 1, 2014 -- A tornado touched down last Sunday night, April 27, in north central Arkansas. Gary DiGiuseppe (Arkansas Radio Network, Little Rock, AR) said, "Among the hardest hit communities were Vilonia and Mayflower in Faulkner County, north of Little Rock. The county recorded 10 fatalities. It was three years and one day after another tornado had struck Vilonia." Gary reports that University of Arkansas Extension staff chair for Faulkner County Hank Cheney told him, "A lot of people who had damage, had just finished rebuilding and were getting their lives back." He says one cattle producer may have lost as many as 80 head, and another suffered extensive loss of farm structures. Read More about Arkansas Damage Reports
