Two Dead in Missouri Storms

PARIS, MO - Authorities have identified the two people killed when a tornado struck a mobile home in rural Monroe County, 55 miles northeast of Columbia.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 44-year-old Earl Ezner and 25-year-old Kirby Seacrest died when the twister tore apart the trailer they were in at about 12:15 a.m. today.

Trooper say their bodies were found 400 feet north of where the mobile home was sitting.

High winds in the area downed trees, power lines and utility poles.  Authorities say some of the falling trees left minor damage to homes in Callaway, Audrain and Monroe counties.
