CARAWAY, Ark. (FOX13) -

Five trick-or-treaters in Caraway, Ark., were reported missing Thursday evening as a severe storm rolled through southeastern Craighead County, a spokesperson said.

The National Weather Service in Memphis, Tenn., issued tornado warnings for southeastern Craighead County, central Mississippi County, and northeastern Poinsett County in eastern Arkansas after radar indicated a severe thunderstorm that was capable of producing a tornado near Caraway.

The thunderstorm raced through eastern Arkansas at 40 mph.

After the severe weather cleared and the tornado warning was canceled, the five trick-or-treaters were wound safe in a storm shelter.

At this time no injuries have been reported.

The National Weather Service in Memphis said it will look at the damage in Caraway to determine if it was caused by a tornado.

The same system that roared through eastern Arkansas briefly sparked tornado watches in Crockett, Dyer, Gibson, Haywood, Lauderdale, and Tipton counties in Tennessee before the cell moved eastward toward Middle Tennessee.

Caraway is 50 miles northwest of Memphis.
