Residents in Missouri and Arkansas are grappling with the aftermath of a series of storms that spawned at least two tornadoes.
At least 24 homes in Hazelwood, Missouri, sustained severe damage from Wednesday night's storms, the St. Louis County Office of Emergency Management said.
One tornado touched down in the St. Louis suburb, ripping the roofs off of several homes, Hazelwood communications manager Tim Davidson said. No serious injuries were immediately reported.
Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency in Missouri after a series of storms pummeled the St. Louis area and elsewhere across the state. Nixon will tour damaged areas Thursday, his website said.

I operate a non profit called Neighbors That Care and we profit gently used clothing and new hygiene products to people who have experienced a tragedy due to a natural disaster. We can provide some clothing, tooth brushes and tooth paste. Does anyone know of a local church or organization in the area that is providing assistance to those who lost their homes? If so, can you please post so I can reach out to them?
