A state official says an overnight storm system that spawned tornadoes in several Midwest states killed a fourth person in western Arkansas.

Renee Preslar, a spokeswoman for the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management, says authorities discovered the fourth victim's body Wednesday in the town of Strawberry, in Johnson County. The discovery raises the death toll from the storms to 14 people in three states.

Eight people died in Oklahoma as part of a tornado outbreak Wednesday, and two people in Kansas were killed when high winds
flung a tree into their van.

Eight people died when a series of tornadoes struck metropolitan Oklahoma City, and two other deaths have been confirmed in Kansas.
