A wave of storms and tornadoes ripped through Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas over the weekend, resulting in the deaths of over a dozen people. A majority of the deaths were in Faulkner County, Ark., just an hour north of Poyen, Ark., where Justin Moore is from. He was one of the first to offer up prayers via Twitter to the victims and families affected by the storms.
The Weather Channel reports that there were 14 deaths in Arkansas alone, where communities are still assessing the damages to their cities and homes. A spokesperson for the governor of Arkansas said the tornado had to be at least half a mile wide.
In Kansas, more tornadoes flew through Baxter Springs where Joe Don Rooney of Rascal Flatts was born. The guitarist offered up his thoughts via Twitter as well.
