Tornado strikes

The week's news at a glance.

Evansville, Ind.

At least 22 people were killed this week when a tornado crashed through an Indiana mobile home park and the surrounding area while people slept. One survivor, Tim Martin, said the wind woke him up as it lifted up his home and deposited it in a neighbor’s yard. “All I could see was debris,” said Martin, 42. “It was like a bad dream.” The tornado was the deadliest to hit the state since 1974, and rescuers said the death toll could climb. Several people remained unaccounted for after two days of searching, and authorities were draining a 6-foot-deep retention pond to see if bodies remained hidden underwater.
