A severe weather system unleashed more than 30 tornadoes in the southern Great Plains on its way to the Great Lakes region over the past two days. Missouri and parts of Illinois and Arkansas bore the brunt of the severe weather on Tuesday. Brandon Beasley, 23, and his wife, Christin, 24, of Missouri died on Tuesday when their SUV skidded across a highway into a tractor trailer in heavy rain. Storms on Monday flipped campers at Lucas Oil Speedway in Hickory, Mo., injuring seven people. Four were taken to the hospital.
