Severe weather leaves dozens without home in AR town

PINE BLUFF, AR (WMC/KATV) - Some people have been left to pick up the pieces after severe weather moved through Pine Bluff, Arkansas.

A suspected tornado left an apartment complex in near rubble, with some of the structure appearing like it was ripped from its frame.

Authorities said 40-50 people are displaced because of the damage to the apartment complex.

Four injuries have been reported, ranging from minor to serious.

The town's may said it's times like these where the community unites the most.

"The first thing you do is panic. But then you go to the scene and see the outpour of support you don't realize how strong your community is until there is a time of tragedy," Mayor Shirley Washington said.

People in the apartment complex said the storm came so fast, they didn’t have time to react.
