At least 3 dead after Missouri tornado

Several tornadoes swept the state on the night, leaving three dead, Gov Mike Parson said. As a leading Jefferson City business, we want to step forward and help our neighbors. Forecasters predicted parts of Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas could see more severe weather Wednesday night into Thursday.

Parson mentioned that resulting from anguish sustained by some protest buildings in Jefferson City, ideal very crucial protest workers are being asked to file for work Thursday.

National Weather Service meteorologist Cory Rothstein said it's possible that tornado had a 50-mile path and could have been on the ground for 80 minutes. A high school commencement was disrupted by the storm, prompting people attending to scurry to the bowels of a basketball arena in Iowa City while a tornado siren blared.

Engineering researchers from the Missouri University of Science and Technology are spending several days in Jefferson City to study the destruction caused by a tornado that battered the city late Wednesday.

The National Weather Service said preliminary information indicates the tornado at Jefferson City was an EF-3, which typically carry winds up to 160 miles per hour (260 kph).

Back on Ellis Boulevard, Break Time and Sonic Drive-In suffered severe structural damage. They will be in the area by Saturday morning and will move southeast with the floodwaters.

Two barges broke loose and floated swiftly down the swollen Arkansas River in eastern Oklahoma on Wednesday, spreading alarm downstream as they threatened to hit a dam. Trees were blown into homes, and in some cases, whole roofs were lifted off.

Betty Berg, 56, also was killed and her husband, Mark, was seriously injured when their mobile home was destroyed just west of the city, Lueckenhoff said.

"This is a life-threatening situation", Webber Falls officials posted on the town's Facebook page. Never had to do that before.

There were no immediate reports of any deaths or missing people in the capital city of about 40,000, and it appeared everyone was accounted for after door-to-door checks that were almost complete Thursday evening, police Lt. David Williams said. "We're doing okay but praying for those that were caught in damage, some are still trapped - local emergency crews are on site and assisting". The University of Missouri offered housing on its campus. The Jefferson City Fire Department was also sending rescuers from house-to-house searching for people trapped in debris.

Major damage in residential areas occurred on Ellis Boulevard and Tanner Bridge Road. "We need to design structures to resist tornadoes".

Rodgers himself had never been through a tornado, so it was shocking to see the devastation. "There's no one missing that we know of ... that's a ultimate thing". The Red Cross set up shelters throughout the city, local ABC affiliate KMIZ reported. Around 100 people had taken advantage of the service.

Residents affected by a powerful tornado in Missouri's capital city now could have to withstand some hot weather without electricity to their homes.

A few photos of the damage in Jefferson City. "On a scale of 1-10, it's probably around a 10 for damage".

"There's basically one building that's basically one story now", he said. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. Contractors are clearing rights-of-way, while others are using special pole-setting equipment on tracks to access areas unsuitable for standard digging trucks.
