At least two people are dead, and pockets of damage are reported through several southern states after a line of severe storms moved through the region.

Winds gusts of 80 mph as well as tornadoes damaged homes and businesses in Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee on Thursday.

A tornado stayed on the ground for about eight miles in eastern Arkansas, according to the National Weather Service, although most of the reported damage was from straight-line winds. Eighteen homes were damaged.

Homes were also damaged in Mississippi, particularly in Bolivar and Panola counties, according to state emergency management reports.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency reported it has received no requests for federal assistance.
