At Least 13 Killed by Storms, Flooding in US South, Midwest

At least 13 people were killed in weekend storms that brought tornadoes and flooding to the South and Midwest and also dumped a rare late-season blizzard in western Kansas.

The victims included four people killed when tornadoes hit several small towns in East Texas, and three killed by flooding and winds in Arkansas, where officials said two more people were missing.

Flooding closed part of Interstate 44 near Hazelgreen, Mo., and officials expected it would be at least a day before the highway reopened, Los Angeles Times reported.
