Deadly Tornado Kills Two, Several Others Injured

The cleanup continues Monday after a massive tornado damaged more than 150 homes.

The E-F 3 tornado touched down Friday afternoon, hitting the Kirksville community of Madison County especially hard.

The tornado has created a long road ahead for many in the area who are trying to gather their belongings and re-build.

But it's not just homes that were ruined, lives were also lost in this devastating storm.

The twister killed a man and woman in Madison county when their mobile home was picked up and thrown into a pond. Their bodies were found in the pond, near their destroyed trailer.

Six people were inside the trailer when the tornado slammed into their home. Several others in that home including children were hurt, three of them are still in the hospital.

But the family says to make matters worse, while suffering this horrible loss, looters are taking their belongings.

Family members tell 27NEWSFIRST people have come onto their property and taken things from the home and vehicles. Family say their children's car seats and a car radio were stolen.

Police and National Guard troops are patrolling areas of Madison County, to deter possible looters.
