Tornado outbreak brings late-fall terror to Midwest
Matt Pearce, Carlos Sadovi and Michelle ManchirAt least six people were killed and dozens more hurt when an unusual November tornado outbreak hopscotched through the Midwest on Sunday, leaving destruction in its wake.
Twisters and thunderstorms more reminiscent of spring than fall savaged communities in Illinois, Missouri, Indiana and Kentucky with punishing winds and heavy hail. Survivors poured into hospitals with broken limbs and other wounds from flying debris.
An NFL game at Soldier Field in Chicago had to be suspended as football fans evacuated to the concourses, taking shelter from a line of storms. The stadium was spared, and the game between the Chicago Bears and the Baltimore Ravens resumed after a nearly two-hour delay.
