Tornado kills 1 person; Several others injured

Posted: Updated:

A storm system that left one person dead and seven injured in northern Illinois is now threatening parts of the Atlantic Coast.

The storm yesterday brought high winds and rain to east Texas, ripping off a church rooftop and damaging a nursing home. And a 67-year-old woman was killed in the small town of Fairdale, Illinois when a tornado ripped through.

Seven other people were injured. Emergency officials say just about every structure in the small town of 200 residents was either destroyed or damaged.
