An EF-4 tornado tore a 123-mile-long path through seven counties in north central Arkansas, killing twelve people and injuring at least 190. Approximately 880 homes and 100 businesses were destroyed. The storm set an Arkansas record for its length and made one of the longest verified tornado tracks in U.S. history. The towns of Clinton (Van Buren County) and Atkins (Pope County) suffered the most severe damage. A smaller tornado devastated Gassville (Baxter County).
