At Least 43 Killed in Storms, Tornadoes

The deadly tornadoes and severe storms that swept the South, Southwest, and Midwest over the holiday weekend and left at least 43 people dead are set to continue Monday, as states of emergency were declared across several states. In New Mexico and Missouri, rescue teams are battling flash floods and evacuating residents from their homes. In Missouri and Illinois, at least 13 people are dead from rising waters. At least 11 people were killed in Texas by a series of powerful tornadoes, with some carrying winds of up to 200 miles per hour. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott declared Dallas County and three surrounding counties disaster areas after as many as 11 tornadoes barreled through the area and damaged more than 100 homes. The governor warned residents to stay off the road Sunday, when snow and ice caused whiteout conditions across parts of Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma.
