Tornado kills star storm chasers


The severe weather pattern that terrorized Oklahoma and Missouri over the weekend moved toward the Middle Atlantic states and the Northeast Sunday. It featured high winds, hail and rain.

Twelve days earlier an EF-5 tornado killed 24 people in Oklahoma City and its south suburb of Moore. More than 350 people were injured and thousands lost their homes in the week of twisters. Power outages remained widespread.

National Weather Center forecasters said the turbulent weather cell that caused the weekend havoc  will continue to move slowly east and north during the first part of the week. There was also a chance that the heartland would get pounded by another severe storm front Monday.
