The National Weather Service says at least 11 tornadoes traversed Arkansas over the weekend, and more could be confirmed in additional surveys.

The two strongest tornadoes were both rated EF2. One hit Mountainburg in northwest Arkansas while the other struck Montrose in the southern part of the state. EF1 tornadoes were confirmed in Lavaca, Ozone, Gamaliel, Umpire, Crossett and southwest Ashley County. An EF0 tornado was confirmed in Oppelo in Conway County.

On Sunday, Gov. Asa Hutchinson toured damage in Mountainburg, where four people were injured. Hutchinson said emergency warning systems in the area likely prevented any loss of life.
