“It started out in Galena north of Galena and moved across the Missouri line and that’s probablyl the one that hit here and then we also had some ports of tornadoes that touched down in Alba area as well as Oronogo,” says Jasper County Sheriff Randee Kaiser.
He adds Red Cross will be providing emergency services to those who have been affected by the storms.
