A powerful storm system rampaged through the Midwest on Sunday,
spawning scores of tornadoes that killed at least four people,
injured dozens of others and left devastating damage in parts
of central Illinois.

Brookport, Ill., in Massac County near the Kentucky line, was
particularly hard hit. At least one person was confirmed to have
died, and police with dogs were going door to door to search for
trapped residents. With roads entering the city closed by debris
and downed power lines, Brookport authorities imposed a 6 p.m.-
to-6 a.m. curfew.

At least three other people were killed in Illinois, including
an elderly brother and sister, officials said.
