Tornadoes Strike Central, Southern US, Killing 12

MAYFLOWER, Ark. (AP) - A state official says the death toll from a tornado that tore through central Arkansas has risen to 12 people.

Matt DeCample, a spokesman for Gov. Mike Beebe, said early Monday that Sunday night's tornado that passed through several suburbs west and north of Little Rock killed five people each in Pulaski and Faulkner counties and one person in White County.

A separate tornado from the same storm system moving through the central and southern United States killed one person in northeastern Oklahoma on Sunday.
