LIVE: Deadly tornado outbreak causes devastation in multiple states

April 02, 2023

Damage in Little Rock, Arkansas, was “heartbreaking” to see this morning, AccuWeather National Reporter Bill Wadell said, as he reported live from the city after Friday’s deadly tornado. Wadell pointed to several homes throughout a neighborhood that were severely damaged, including an exterior wall that was blown off the second story of a brick home. There have been reports of at least two dozen injuries in Little Rock, as well as one fatality. Wadell said that things may have been worse if the tornado struck at night, as the daytime tornado meant many locals were either adults working in sturdy buildings or children in school buildings. Arkansas National Guard members are out helping state and local police keep an eye on the hardest-hit areas of Little Rock, with every hand on deck a necessity during the tornado aftermath.
