At least two deaths are reported in overnight storms that raked a good part of Missouri….

The National Weather Service says two people were killed when high winds that might have been a tornado destroyed a mobile home north of Paris, a town in north-central Missouri. The weather service has numerous reports of property damage in a wide area of Missouri. Several areas are without power because of poles being blown down. Four homes have been destroyed in southwest Missouri’s Lawrence County. There are no reports of injuries. Heavy rains with some high winds have caused flash flooding in several places.
