Tornados Strike the Midwest

At least one person killed


At least one person died after a series of tornadoes ripped across the Midwest Sunday, injuring dozens while leaving a path of devastation in a region that is expected to see more severe weather later today.

A 79-year-old man died near a mobile home park in Shawnee, Okla., which was reduced to rubble after one of many Midwest twisters ripped through the area, according to Pottawatomie County Sheriff Mike Booth. At least 21 others in Oklahoma were taken to local hospitals to be treated for injuries.
