The Latest: At least 10 injured in Arkansas severe storms

Mar 1, 2017

An emergency management official says storms that swept through a northern Arkansas county damaged 40 homes and injured at least 10 people.

Arkansas Department of Emergency Management spokeswoman Melody Daniel says no deaths have been reported in Arkansas with Tuesday's storms, but some injuries and damage were reported statewide. Daniel says 10 to 15 people were taken to hospitals in White County, home to the hard-hit towns of Higginson and Kensett.

The extent of their injuries wasn't clear early Wednesday.

Daniel says damage was reported to employees' mobile homes at a state prison facility in Jackson County, and "a few minor injuries" were reported there as well.

Elsewhere, damage was reported at the courthouse and county jail in the Ozarks Mountains town of Marshall, about 80 miles north of Little Rock.
