Debris from a house in Missouri after tornadoes killed six people in the US

A Missouri woman has died of the injuries she suffered in a New Year’s Eve storm which spawned tornadoes and killed six other people in two states, US authorities said.

Rolla Rural Fire Department chief Bruce Southard said the woman was seriously injured when a tornado destroyed her trailer near the south-east Missouri town of Rolla on Friday. She has died in a hospital in Columbia.

A friend who was visiting the woman’s home died on Friday, and two other women who also lived near Rolla were killed.

Three other people were killed by tornadoes which touched down in the Arkansas hamlet of Cincinnati on Friday.
