Suspected tornadoes killed at least two people at a mobile home park in Arkansas and damaged about 30 percent of a city in East Texas, authorities said early Monday.

Up to 50 million Americans from Texas to Michigan were bracing Monday for a band of thunderstorms and severe weather stretching down the country's midsection. At least 26 tornadoes were reported on Sunday.


A tornado approaches an area near Van, Texas, on Sunday.

The deaths were confirmed in the Howard County city of Nashville which is located close to the borders with Texas and Oklahoma and experienced "lots of flooding and strong winds," Arkansas Department of Emergency Management spokesman Rick Fahr said. At least two other people in the area were critically injured by the severe weather. A tornado warning had been issued for the area around 1:20 a.m. local time (2:20 a.m. ET) on Monday.

At least 26 people were also hospitalized when a tornado ripped through Van, Texas, causing "heavy damage" on Sunday, Smith County Emergency Management spokesman Keith Tate said. Van is a city of 2,600 people about 73 miles east of Dallas.
