KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Authorities say a third person has been killed in Missouri by a powerful storm system that spawned several tornadoes and claimed at least three lives in Arkansas.
Phelps County Emergency Management Director Sandy North says the woman was killed Friday morning when her home about a mile north of Rolla was destroyed by the storm. North says six others were injured in the county, including one critically. She says about 20 homes have been destroyed or seriously damaged.
