April 02, 2023

'At this time, we know of 24 people who have been hospitalized at Little Rock hospitals and we are not aware of any fatalities in Little Rock,' Mayor Frank Scott Jr. said on Twitter. Local television station KTHV-TV reported one storm-related death in North Little Rock, but that could not be immediately confirmed. The Little Rock tornado tore first through neighborhoods in the western part of the city and shredded a small shopping center that included a Kroger grocery store. The Little Rock Fire Department reported heavy damage and debris in western Little Rock and said firefighters had carried out rescue operations in the area. Outside a Little Rock Guitar Center, five people were captured on video aiming their phones at the swirling sky.
