Roofs were torn off buildings in Winn, trees were uprooted, causing roadblocks. According to local mayor Jennifer Hobbs, the city was “cut in half by destruction from east to west.”

Arkansas Governor Sarah Sanders has declared a state of emergency.

The storm also affected other US states. Nearly 300,000 homes in Illinois, Arkansas, Indiana, Tennessee, Iowa, Wisconsin, Missouri and Michigan were left without power.

At the same time, according to the National Hurricane Prediction Center, the number of preliminary reports of tornadoes in the country on Friday reached 43. Of these, 16 in Illinois, 12 in Arkansas, 8 in Iowa, two more each in Wisconsin , Tennessee and Mississippi.
