(WJBK) - At least 14 people are dead after powerful storms rip through the nation.

At least 12 people were killed in Arkansas, and one person in Iowa and one person in Oaklama were killed.

The tornado in suburban Little Rock, Ark. carved an 80-mile path of destruction.

Ark. Gov. Mike Beebe says how many people are missing is still unclear, and it's still too early to estimate total damages.

Right now, the main focus is on search and rescue. Authorities are also increasing security to prevent looting.

Meanwhile, metro Detroiters are stepping up to help the tornado victims.

Volunteers from the organization DRAW, Disaster Relief at Work, packed buckets of supplies and are now on their way to Little Rock.
