Possibly Devastating Tornado in Arkansas

Kevin Lighty from KSPR noted on Facebook tonight this amazing radar signature of a tornado near Vilonia, Arkansas. Both the storm relative velocity showing incredible rotation and the debris ball on the radar are just off the hook.

Reed Timmer is reporting that pavement has been scoured off near Vilonia. The last time I've hears about anything like that was the Jarrell, TX tornado in 1997, which was rated an F5.

Let's hope that the impact to the folks in Arkansas isn't as bad as it could be...
