Deadly Tornadoes Captured On Video

At least seven people died when powerful storms blew through the Midwest overnight, according to Reuters. At least five people died in Arkansas, including a child who was crushed by a falling tree. The power is out in much of Little Rock, schools are closed and several highways are blocked.

Two people died in Oklahoma, where the National Weather Service says two tornadoes touched down in the eastern part of the state. The Tulsa World reports investigators may find evidence of more twisters.
