Arkansas Storms Kill Seven


DAMASCUS, Arkansas (CNN) -- At least seven people, including three members of the same family, were killed Friday and at least 13 people were injured as severe weather swept through Arkansas, emergency officials said.

There's a town in Arkansas called "Damascus???"

Three people -- two adults and a child -- died when their home in Damascus, Arkansas, took a direct hit from what may have been a tornado, Van Buren County Sheriff Scott Bradley said.

Two people were killed in Conway County, Arkansas, and one in Hensley, south of the capital city of Little Rock in southern Pulaski County, said Tommy Jackson of the state Department of Emergency Management. He said he did not have details. (H/T - CNN)
