"It's all gone, took about 20 seconds." Clark is actually one of the lucky ones. He, his wife and three year old son survived. At least 19 others didn't. They were killed when raging winds reaching speeds as high as one hundred and fifty five miles an hour toppled their trailers and annihilated their homes.

"An elderly man in the mobile home park was killed. They found his body I guess two to three hundred yards out in the field in front of where his house once was." The tornadoes struck just after midnight Monday morning, the deadliest to slam the state in nearly half a century. Forecasters blame La Nina. The weather pattern brings with it unseasonably warm weather and can spawn unforgettable storms.
