Latest tornado count at 6 in central Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - At least six tornadoes hit central Arkansas last week, causing millions of dollars in damage.

Three hit Saline County, two struck Pulaski County and one ripped through Lonoke County. One person was killed in a weather-related traffic accident, and many people were without power for days. One of the tornadoes went from North Little Rock into Sherwood and damaged many buildings. Among the casualties was a tornado siren at the Sherwood Sports Complex.

Because of the power outage, today's classes at Sylvan Hills High School will be held at various community locations. The high school building is to reopen Thursday.
