JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Violent storms and tornadoes slammed Missouri late Wednesday, leaving three people dead and pummeling the state's capital, officials said.
No deaths have been reported in connection with the Jefferson City tornado, police said in a news conference early Thursday.
The news came after officials said three people were killed when a "suspected tornado" struck Golden City, NBC News reported.
Earlier this week, storms were blamed for three more deaths – including two in Missouri and one in Iowa – and a possible fourth in Oklahoma, the AP reported.
