By DAILY MAIL REPORTER and AP

At least 17 people have died after a powerful storm system spawning several tornadoes tore through the central and southern states last night with experts warning that another hundred are set to hit the central states this week at the start of tornado season.

Winds ripped houses off their foundations and flipped cars on top of the rubble in the small town of Vilonia in central Arkansas' Faulkner county, one of the worst-hit communities. 

Early this morning Arkansas Department of Emergency Management announced the death toll stating the deadly weather had killed seven people in Faulkner County, five people in Pulaski County and one person in White County.

Tornado watches - which means twisters could develop but are not an immediate threat - are in effect for states as far west as New Mexico and as far east as Tennessee and the system produced storms that were moving through the region in waves. 

Watches were also issued for Kansas, Missouri, Mississippi, Nebraska, Iowa, Texas and Louisiana. Quapaw was heavily damaged. 'Looks like about half of town got extensive damage as well as the fire department,' Ottawa County Emergency Management director Joe Morgan said. 

Business owners look over the damage after a tornado hit the town of Mayflower. It missed the state capital but passed through or near several of its suburbs, causing widespread damage in the communities of Mayflower and Vilonia

Seeing as how they spray chem-trails something like over 300 days a year here in Oklahoma City, I think the weather is severely manipulated and controlled here. To me this means that while they might not be able to stop tornadoes in Tornado Alley that they can definitely control where they strike so these deaths border on premeditated murder.
