Violent storms carved out a swatch of damage three miles wide Monday night in central Arkansas, leaving at least two residents of a small town dead, authorities said.
Three others were killed when floodwaters swept their vehicles off the road in the northwest corner of the state, authorities said.
The National Weather Service said it was extremely likely a tornado swept through Vilonia, where at least two people died, according to Arkansas Department of Emergency Management spokesman Tommy Jackson.
