Little Rock -- President Barack Obama visited Arkansas today to tour tornado-ravaged towns and speak with victims of the storms.

Mr. Obama flew in on Air Force One at Little Rock Air Force Base shortly after noon for a tour of the storm-ravaged areas.

He rode inside the presidential helicopter Marine One for the tour, then landed in Vilonia, riding in a motorcade to meet with local officials and chat with tornado victims along Naylor Road.

The President wrapped up his visit just after 3 p.m. and headed to California for some fundraising events.
