MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Officials with the Tennessee
Emergency Management Agency say a reported tornado has killed two
people and injured 30 in the central part of the state.
Agency spokesman Donnie Smith confirmed the deaths Friday in the
city about 30 miles southeast of Nashville.
Dispatchers at the Rutherford County Emergency Management Agency
say the area has been "heavily impacted" after several eyewitness
reports of a tornado on the ground at about midday.
A line of storms killed three people a day earlier in western
Arkansas and then crept into the South.
Elsewhere, a tornado touched down in southwestern Kentucky,
injuring two people and destroying a mobile home.
