VILONIA, Ark. - Arkansas governor's aide Matt DeCample says the state death toll from tornadoes that swept through the Little Rock area has been revised downward to 14 from 16, as two victims were counted twice.

He says he still expects the overall death toll to rise, however. Emergency officials searched for survivors Monday in the debris left by the tornado that carved an 80-mile path of destruction through suburban Little Rock.
