One man says he thought he was "going to die" when a tornado hit parts of Little Rock and its suburbs last night.
An unknown number of people were hurt. The storm damaged
businesses and downed trees and power lines.
The National Weather Service reports injuries at a trailer park
in Benton.
At the North Little Rock airport, the storm destroyed a hangar
and several small planes and flipped several others onto their
wings.
Gregory Greene says he was outside a restaurant when the tornado
hit. He says the twister pushed his girlfriend up against a wall
and knocked him down and pushed him under a truck.
A second storm hit much of the same area south of Little Rock
later last night but was not as potent.
Over the past two months, parts of Arkansas have seen a tornado
during a storm outbreak that killed 13, a foot of snow, more than a
foot of rain and near-record flooding.
