Sunday: Crawford County rescue personel remove storm debris to help a person trapped in the rubble.
PIERCE CITY, Mo â€” A swarm of tornadoes spiraled through the Midwest Sunday, killing at least 26 people in Kansas, Missouri and Tennessee.
Another eight people were feared dead in Pierce City, Mo., when the armory where they had taken shelter was virtually leveled.
Houses across the region were knocked off their foundations, trees were uprooted, power lines littered roadways and travelers were forced to huddle in underground tunnels at Kansas City's main airport.
In Pierce City, there was not a home or business in the town of nearly 1,400 residents untouched by a tornado. Trees were twisted and brick, glass and other debris made it impossible to walk the streets.
