Tornado outbreak kills at least 18 By Susan Kelleher (MCT) VILONIA, Ark. —Three years after a tornado devastated the Little Rock suburb of Vilonia, its residents found themselves huddling in the dark early Monday wondering how they would rebuild again after the most powerful tornado yet this year carved a path through their city and others nearby, killing at least 16 people. The tornado touched down Sunday about 10 miles west of Little Rock at around 7 p.m., then carved an 80-mile path of destruction as it passed through or near several suburbs north of the state capital, including Vilonia. It grew to be a half-mile wide and remained on the ground for much of that route, authorities said. Among the ruins was a new $14 million intermediate school that was set to open this fall. “There’s just really nothing there anymore. We’re probably going to have to start all over again,” Vilonia Schools Superintendent Frank Mitchell said after surveying what was left of the building. The tornado was the largest of several produced by a powerful storm system that rumbled through the central and southern U.S. Another twister killed a person in Quapaw, Okla., before crossing into Kansas to the north and destroying 60 to 70 homes and injuring 25 people in the city of Baxter Springs, according to authorities in Kansas. A death was reported in Baxter Springs, but it wasn’t yet known if it was caused by the tornado, making the Oklahoma death the only confirmed death from Sunday’s storms outside of Arkansas. The overall death toll stood at 18 early today. The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center said more storms were expected today in the South and Mississippi Valley.
