VILONIA, Ark. (AP) - Relief groups in Faulkner County say more volunteers are needed to continue with the cleanup efforts from the April 27 tornado.
  
Arkansas Dream Center Executive Director Drew Davis says 5 to 6 homes still need to be demolished, and about two dozen sites need extensive cleanup work. The EF4 tornado that hit Vilonia and Mayflower killed 15 people and caused extensive damage.
  
Davis tells the Log Cabin Democrat (http://bit.ly/1i7t1X8 ) that 700 people in the area were affected by the storm -- and that less than one-third of them have secured permanent housing. He says the most-needed donations now are furniture and small appliances.
  
Faulkner County Judge Allen Dodson said the county will begin its final sweep for tornado debris on June 30.
