At least 12 people were killed after severe storms spawned tornadoes and high winds across sections of southwestern Missouri, the State Emergency Management Agency said. Ten of the dead were killed when a twister struck near Seneca, near the Oklahoma border.
“There may be more — I hope not,” said SEMA spokeswoman Susie Stonner late Saturday night.
At least six people were killed earlier in the day as the tornado flattened the northeastern Oklahoma town of Picher, authorities said.
