(AP) A state official says a massive tornado that swept through central Arkansas was responsible for four more deaths, raising the total in the state to eight.


Matt DeCample, a spokesman for Gov. Mike Beebe, says Sunday night's tornado was responsible for four deaths in Faulkner County. He earlier said it killed three people in Pulaski County and one in White County.


The tornado was one of several that touched down Sunday in the central and southern United States. Among them was a twister that killed one person in the northeastern Oklahoma community of Quapaw. That tornado then moved northward into Kansas and destroyed dozens of homes in the city of Baxter Springs.
