For the third time this year, a tornado has caused massive destruction along the length of Tornado Alley, the notorious area from South Dakota to Texas where most tornadoes strike. The main damage has been done in the area north of St. Louis, Missouri. “I was terrified,” said Arthur Rollings of Wolfville, Illinois. “I had been working in the fields, and I was driving south
along Route 19 in my truck. I saw this grey column coming up from the south-east. I just turned round and drove north, as fast as I could go. I didn’t stop driving for an hour. By the time I stopped, the tornado had turned east.” Ehen the tornado reached Missouri; it had already caused millions of dollars’ worth of damage in five states. Several hundred homes in Texas had been destroyed, and the roof of a school in Kentucky had been blown off.
