Severe weather had moved east by Sunday night, but the Roanoke and New River valleys were continuing to see rainfall, according to the National Weather Service in Blacskburg.

The Amherst County Sheriff's Office urged residents not to travel to Elon, saying any unnecessary traffic would hamper response efforts. As the tornado continued into Chicot County, two sets of wooden transmission poled were found snapped and a mobile home sustained damage.

But the National Weather Service advised people to use caution.

Record low temperatures for the date were expected in Oklahoma City on Monday at 30 degrees F (-1 C), and in Kansas City, Missouri, at 25 F (-4 C), Hurley said.

One of the strongest twisters in Arkansas' weekend storms, an EF-2, hit Mountainburg in southeast Crawford County late Friday afternoon, according to a storm survey.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - On Friday evening and into the overnight hours, Arkansas was rocked with severe weather.

As Minnesota began digging out from a mid-April snowstorm, one North Carolina city was cleaning up the damage Monday from a deadly tornado spawned from the same vast storm system that pushed across the US and ended with drenching rains in the Northeast.

What the survey teams are looking for to make their determination as far as what created the damage is what direction the damage occurred in the path of the storm. That is northeast of Mountain Home. There have been no reports of tornado touch downs or damage. This type of damage was consistent with wind speeds of 85-90 miles per hour.

Single EF-1 tornadoes were reported in Gamaliel in Baxter County; Lavaca in Sebastian and Franklin counties; Ozone in Johnson County; and Umpire in Howard County.
