As of 6 o'clock this morning there are 16 confirmed dead in Arkansas and 1 in Oklahoma from tornadoes that swept through the states overnight. I spoke with a friend this morning in Jonesboro, Arkansas, who is hunkering down safely with her children and they, along with others, should be in our thoughts and prayers as more storms are expected.

This is a drone video shot in the aftermath of one of the twisters that swept through the state of Arkansas last evening.
