This following a reported eight tornadoes Wednesday in Oklahoma, Kansas, and Missouri. The tornadoes are part of a severe storm that affected an estimated 95 million people on Thursday.
The glaring headline of the night’s severe weather activity took place in Rochelle, Ill., where a tornado with winds reported at 91 miles per hour destroyed local restaurant Grubsteakers, and trapped 12 people underneath the rubble in the basement. All were safely rescued Thursday evening.
