MAYFLOWER, AR - Police advise non residents of Mayflower to keep out after Sunday night's tornado.

A triage has been set up at Lumber One on Highway 365.

Dozens of troops with the Arkansas National Guard are on the scene to help with medical evacuations and traffic control.

A command center has been set up at the hard-hit Plantation Acres neighborhood.
Mayflower Police say officers are driving people out of the area.

Police say the first goal is to get everyone accounted for and to find out how many residents have lost their homes or had any kind of damage.

Emergency crews have had to handle major gas leaks in the neighborhood after the storm's destruction.
