Illustration for article titled Drone Cam Shows Arkansas Tornados Horrific Path Of Destruction

As a powerful storm system moved through the central United States on Sunday evening, tornadoes caused severe damage in Arkansas and other states. The destruction on one highway was captured by this drone camera video.

KATV videographer Brian Emfinger shot this video right after the tornado ripped through Interstate 40 near Mayflower, destroying the cars, trucks and homes in its path. Mashable reports witnesses saying the tornado was at least half a mile wide.


At least 16 people were killed by this tornado, and two others died as a result of two separate tornadoes produced by the storm system.

Ratings for Sunday's tornadoes wasn't immediately available, but prior to their arrival the area had been experiencing a relatively quiet start to the typical storm season.
