A motorist reports from the Morgan exit at Maumelle that westbound traffic on Interstate 40
is barely moving, which would indicate a backup of some 10 miles from the tornado damage zone around Mayflower. Traffic in the other land is slow, too.
NOTED: The early morning state report of 16 deaths was reduced to 14 after discovery that two people had been counted twice in Pulaski County. Three people in a single home were killed.
