Tornadoes touched down in the upper Midwest and northern Arkansas Tuesday, killing at least two people, as a spring-like storm system posed a risk to 45 million people.One person was killed when an apparent tornado ripped through Perry County, Missouri, about 80 miles south of St. Louis. Eight to 10 homes near the small town of Perryville were badly damaged and winds were so strong that several vehicles were blown off of Interstate 55 . It warned that significant tornadoes with winds above 111 mph were possible until 4 a.m. Central time.The Bald Knob storm was part of the same system that produced a wall cloud near Mayflower, Arkansas, which was hit in 2014 by a tornado with winds approaching 200 mph.The Arkansas storm held together for more than 100 miles, though it did not produce tornadoes.
