Authorities say tornadoes ripping through central Arkansas have killed at least three people, injured 25 others and destroyed several homes.

A state Department of Emergency Management spokeswoman says teams are searching for people who may be trapped in a damaged home in Center Ridge, north of Little Rock.

Spokeswoman Renee Preslar says three people were killed and three homes were destroyed in nearby Van Buren County. Details haven't been released.

Arkansas State Police say tornado sightings have been reported just north in Culpepper. A sheriff's dispatcher said a sighting also was reported in the Oakland area, near the Missouri border. Trees and power lines are down along interstates in both areas.
