Missouri tornadoes The tornado warning sirens had quieted and Larry Jett was dozing in his recliner when the piercing alerts began again.

It was too late to scramble to the basement as the massive twister that tore through this city overnight descended on his family home of 40 years. His mother, Bettie, flung herself onto the chair with him as the powerful storm sucked the recliner to the ceiling before dropping them all to the floor.

“It happened so quick you didn’t even know what happened,” Larry Jett, 57, said Thursday as they picked through the debris. "I swear the devil is trying to kill me."

The tornado touched off a "chaotic situation" that left 20 people injured, scores of buildings damaged and some residents trapped in their homes, police Lt. David Williams told reporters from the damaged Cole County Sheriff's Office building.
