Midwest Tornadoes Kill Seven

Disaster teams were searching for victims of Sunday's tornadoes in portions of northern Iowa and Minnesota. A tornado touched down at about 6 p.m. Sunday in the north-central Iowa town of Parkersburg before moving 10 miles east to New Hartford. Streets were lined with huge piles of debris that included damaged vehicles, uprooted trees and parts of houses that had been standing earlier in the day. More than 400 homes in Parkersburg were damaged and 222 of them were destroyed. Further north, a Minnesota twister killed a 2-year-old and seriously injured nine others in the Minneapolis suburb of Hugo. Areas where the twisters hit and were expected to be declared disaster areas by the government.
