Wild Weather Pounds Midwest with Snow, Rain

Ad Feedback

Wild weather is pounding in the Midwest, with powerful storms packing rain, snow and wind moving through the region.

The system spawned at least three tornadoes across Missouri Wednesday night, prompting the state's governor to declare a state of emergency.

"This was a strong system of storms that caused damage to communities in several areas of our state," Gov. Jay Nixon said in a statement. "We will continue to work closely with local officials to assess damages and provide any needed assistance."

In Arkansas, people are picking up the pieces after severe storms destroyed six homes.  One twister destroyed the sanctuary and classrooms at Botkinburg Foursquare Church just before Wednesday night services.

"If the tornado would have come an hour and a half later, we would have been caught in it," Senior Pastor Ester Bass told CNN.

Meanwhile in Minnesota, forecasters are calling for as much as 14 inches of snow in parts of the state.
Some worry snow could also cause problems in southeastern North Dakota, an area prone to flooding.
