VILONIA, Ark. (AP) - There are no fatalities reported after the National Weather Service says a suspected tornado touched down in northwest Louisiana this morning.

The Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office says the twister hit around 3:15 a.m. in a mostly rural area six miles west of Plain Dealing.

Forecasters have warned of more storms today following yesterday's tornadoes throughout the central and southern U.S. that killed at least 16 in Arkansas and one in Oklahoma.
