Violent Tornado Damages Jefferson City, Missouri
A violent tornado tore through Missouri's capital late Wednesday in what authorities described as a "chaotic" scene, leaving some people trapped, others injured and buildings damaged.
"1147 pm - Jefferson City MO - Violent tornado confirmed - shelter now!" the National Weather Service in St. Louis tweeted Wednesday night.
Jefferson City Police Lt. David Williams said early Thursday there were no fatalities reported but that authorities had been receiving calls of people stuck in their homes.
