UPDATE: Possible tornadoes reported Tuesday in Oklahoma, Arkansas


      

TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ The National Weather Service is investigating reports of
multiple tornadoes in northeastern Oklahoma and northwestern Arkansas.

Tulsa meteorologist Joe Sellers said Wednesday there were several reports
Tuesday of weak twisters in Rogers, Sequoyah and Wagoner counties in Oklahoma.
Sellers says an investigator was working Wednesday to confirm the reports,
determine the amount of damage and rate the intensity of the possible tornadoes.

Sellers says reported damage is minor with tree limbs downed and shingles blown
off roofs. There have been no reports of injuries.

In Little Rock, officials say a confirmed tornado touched down mid-afternoon
Tuesday on the border of Franklin and Johnson counties, causing minor tree
damage.

Severe thunderstorms with strong winds also rolled through central Oklahoma on
Tuesday, flipping parked vehicles and causing more than 3,000 power outages.
