LITTLE ROCK, Ark (Reuters) - Violent storms ripped across Oklahoma and Arkansas overnight, killing at least six people including a 6-year-old child, and cutting a path of destruction through several towns, authorities said on Friday.

Tornadoes killed two people in Oklahoma, one in the small southeastern town of Tushka where the only school was leveled. A second person was killed in Oklahoma but details were not immediately available, said Michelann Ooten, spokeswoman for the state Department of Emergency Management.

Four people were killed in Arkansas as the storms hit early on Friday morning, authorities said. A six-year-old boy was killed in the town of Bald Knob, two people were dead in Garland and one in Pulaski, local police and Arkansas state police said.

It was a noisy night but they missed us, except maybe the ones that hit down south. I have property where the southern tornado's hit but there are no buildings on it, at worst there will be tree damage.
