Two dead as severe weather moves eastward through central US



At least two people are dead as a strong storm system that included possible tornadoes pushed its way eastward through the central United States, leaving demolished homes, damaged vehicles and uprooted trees in its wake. 

According to authorities, a man in northeast Arkansas and a woman in south central Kentucky were killed as the storm that also included heavy winds, rain and hail muscled its way through the area. The weather service said the roof was blown off a hotel in Osceola, about 257 kilometers north of Memphis, Tennessee. 

Storm-related damage also was reported in Middle Tennessee, where Fox17 in Nashville reported extensive damage to homes and vehicles. Fox17 said at least a dozen homes were damaged in one Montgomery County subdivision. Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens signed an executive order earlier yesterday  declaring a state of emergency ahead of the anticipated storms and flooding in parts of southern Missouri. 

A levee breach along the Kankakee River in northwestern Indiana had local officials urging about 30 homeowners to evacuate. The weather service said record flooding was occurring along the Kankakee following several days of heavy rains and snowmelt that sent streams out of their banks from the Ohio River to Michigan and Wisconsin.
