A state official says the death toll from a tornado that tore through central Arkansas has grown to four people.
Matt DeCample, a spokesman for Gov. Mike Beebe, said Sunday night that three of the deaths were in Pulaski County and the fourth was in White County.
A separate tornado from the same storm system moving through the central and southern United States on Sunday killed one person in northeastern Oklahoma.
