At least 3 killed, dozens hurt as powerful storm system hits several states

At least three people were killed and dozens were injured as a powerful storm system swept through the Midwest and South on Sunday.

The storms produced damaging winds, large hail, and even tornadoes in Arkansas, Illinois, and other states. In Arkansas alone, at least three people were killed and over 40 were injured as a result of the storms.

The Arkansas Department of Emergency Management reported that the storms damaged homes, businesses, and infrastructure in several counties. In Little Rock, the capital of Arkansas, the winds were so strong that they uprooted trees and blew off roofs of buildings.

In Illinois, the storms caused significant damage to homes and businesses in several counties. At least 10 people were injured and several homes were destroyed by tornadoes.

The National Weather Service warned that the storm system was still active and could bring more severe weather to other states. The agency urged people to remain alert and take precautions as the storm system moves east.

The governors of both Arkansas and Illinois have declared a state of emergency in their respective states. Emergency crews are on the ground helping people affected by the storm and assessing the damage.

The storms are expected to continue to move east and could impact other states in the coming days. People in the affected areas are urged to stay indoors and take precautions.
