Cleanup Begins After Devastating Storms



    (NECN/AP) - Parts of Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana have been on edge overnight, amid concern that more tornadoes could be on the way. At least six people died and dozens were hurt as tornadoes struck the South and Midwest yesterday and early today. They were fueled by some unusually warm air.

    Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon will reportedly be taking in the damage today in the town of Sunset hills, where a tornado that may have been as strong as an EF-3,with winds of 165 miles per hour, ripped through Friday afternoon.

    Work crews are just beginning the cleanup process, as dozens of homes were damaged or destroyed in the community.

    An overnight tornado of undetermined strength damaged buildings and boat docks around Table Rock Lake in southern Missouri, leaving several boats adrift after wrenching them from their moorings.

    A church was damaged in nearby Fenton.
