Looks like the midwest is getting hit with tornados.

St. Louis, MO station KMOV:

Amazon distribution center collapses in Edwardsville
There is a large emergency response at an Amazon distribution center in Edwardsville.

News 4’s Jenna Rae was on the scene shortly before 9:30 p.m. Friday and saw dozens of first responders arriving to the area. There have been reports that people were inside of the building when the collapse happened.


“He was on the phone with me while it was happening,” she recalled. “The tornado was hitting the back of the building, the trucks were coming in, I told him to jump out the truck and duck. We watched the building go up, stuff hitting the cars, I told him I was on my way.”

From Little Rock, Ak station KARK:

Tornado outbreak leaving path of deadly destruction through Arkansas
An outbreak of storms starting early Friday evening spawned tornadoes that ravaged communities throughout Arkansas and left at least two people dead.

Authorities in the small northeast Arkansas town of Monette issued a state of emergency and told residents to shelter in place.

Lots of power outages in the area. Missouri has 28,362 customers without power, Arkansas has 27,491, Illinois—35,669, Kentucky—18,278 and Tennesee—10,591

Prayers going out to the people and to the first responders.  This is unusual weather for this time of year.
