At least 17 people have been killed following a series of massive tornadoes that ripped through Arkansas and Oklahoma on Sunday.

Reunters reports:

Arkansas authorities said at least 10 people had died in Faulkner and six more across the state - the first reported fatalities of this year's tornado season. Another person was killed in neighboring Oklahoma, said the sheriff's department.

Searchers were continuing to dig through rubble in Vilonia and a spokesman for the County Sheriff's office said there was a "mass casualty situation".

"An entire neighborhood of 50 or so homes has been destroyed. Many homes are completely gone except the foundation ... There is more devastation like this in other parts of Arkansas," state congressman Tim Griffin told Reuters.

Stormchaser Brian Emfinger was also able to shoot aerial drone footage of the tornado’s destructive aftermath in Mayflower, Arkansas.

Westboro Baptist Church (Literally) Run Out of Moore, OK After Crowds Threaten Violence: VIDEO

Moore

The Westboro Baptist Church  came to Moore, Oklahoma on Sunday afternoon to picket in front of Plaza Towers Elementary School, saying that God sent a deadly tornado last year in retribution for America's tolerance of gay people. The 2013 tornado killed 24 people.

Hundreds of people came to counterprotest the church, and, as you can see from the video, things almost turned violent as several residents tried to cross the street and were challenged by police officers before the WBC church members turned tail and ran.

WBC had a permit for a 30 minute picket, but it lasted 8, according to local media.

After Westboro fled, a woman leading the counterprotest reprimanded several members of the crowd for threatening to take matters into their own hands, asserting that the purpose of the counterprotest was to raise money for the school so that the kids could buy computers.

A sober and horrifying picture of what many tornado victims must experience.
