Chicago:  Tornadoes tore through parts of the US states of Arkansas, Missouri and Illinois, killing at least six people and leaving damage and power outages in its wake.

"Three fatalities have been reported in Washington County," the Arkansas state emergency management office said in a statement. The fatalities were near the town of Cincinnati, Arkansas.

The storm struck Arkansas around 6:00 am local time on Friday, cutting a swath through four counties and leaving at least eight injured, police said. In Missouri, a tornado struck a cluster of trailers in rural Dent County, killing two women, one 64 years old and the other a 21-year-old, said county sheriff Rick Stallings.

Another person was killed by a tornado that touched down near the town of Rolla, about 160 kilometers southwest of St. Louis, in Phelps County, Missouri. Mayor William Nolan of Sunset Hills, Missouri, a town located close to St Louis, said that despite the destruction in his town, which included torn off roofs, there were no injuries.
