Tornado Kills Married Couple in Southern Missouri, Several Injured

March 12, 2006 - Posted at 12:14 p.m. CST

ST. MARY, Mo. (AP) _ A husband and wife were killed in a tornado

in southern Missouri.

Their pickup truck was blown into a propane tank as the twisters

flattened homes along a 20-mile path of destruction about 80 miles

south of St. Louis last night. Several others were injured.

Another severe thunderstorm is now moving into northwest

Missouri, prompting a tornado warning near St. Joseph.

Last night's tornado split a brick ranch home in half, tossed

mobile homes, caved in garages and smashed trees. Several homes and

business were damaged in the small town of Fults, Illinois when a

twister hit.

In Jefferson County, just south of St. Louis, high winds ripped

through a new subdivision, destroying seven homes. Five people were

hurt.

Softball-sized hail also caused damage and wind ripped the roof

off a McDonald's in the popular tourist town of Branson, Missouri.
