FOX19.com: At least 12 dead after Midwest storms
REPORT: A deadly storm that roared through the Midwest has killed at least 12 people and injured more than 100 across several states, leaving homes and businesses pummeled and without power in its wake.
At least 40 percent of one Kansas town was damaged by the powerful storms. Emergency officials are assessing damage in Harveyville, KS, after the storm plowed through about 9 p.m. Wednesday.
The fast moving front that began Tuesday night in Kansas tore through southern Illinois just before sunrise Wednesday killing 10 people near Harrisburg, IL, according to KFVS. The Saline County Sheriff's office has confirmed just three deaths, however.
The sheriff's office said a tornado hit Harrisburg at 4:56 a.m., injuring 100, and damaging or destroying 250 to 300 houses and 25 businesses.
