Tornado strike kills 3 in Missouri

AFP, Washington

A powerful tornado swept across Missouri, killing three people as it knocked down power lines and trees, smashed windows and left streets strewn with debris, officials said yesterday. Major damage was reported in the state capital Jefferson City and at least nine people were hospitalized after Wednesday’s twister.

It forced people to take shelter as heavy rain, hail, wind and lightning struck the state, along with neighboring Oklahoma and Kansas.

“Violent tornado confirmed—shelter now!” tweeted the National Weather Service.

Three fatalities were confirmed in Golden City, 170 miles (270 kilometres) southwest of Jefferson, the Missouri Department of Public Safety said, which also reported the nine injured.

Video footage aired on CNN showed downed trees, smashed windows in storefronts and streets full of debris torn loose by the storm.

Non-essential Missouri state employees were instructed to stay home on Thursday because of damage to state buildings, the department said.
