(Newser) – A tornado fueled by an unusually warm winter air sliced through parts of northwestern Arkansas early today, killing at least three people, injuring several others, and knocking out power to thousands. Three people died in Cincinnati, a small town about three miles from the Oklahoma border. A sheriff's dispatcher said the storm touched down near the center of the community. He said "lots of injuries" were reported, and officials in nearby Benton County said the storm injured two people and damaged five homes there.
