ROLLA, Mo. (AP) -- Authorities say a Missouri woman has died of her injuries caused by a New Year's Eve storm that spawned tornadoes and killed six other people in two states.
Rolla Rural Fire Department Chief Bruce Southard says the woman was seriously injured Friday when a tornado destroyed her trailer near the southeast Missouri town of Rolla. She died at a hospital in Columbia Saturday morning.
Southard didn't immediately release the woman's name. A friend who was visiting the woman's home died Friday, and two other woman who also lived near Rolla were killed.
Three other people were killed by tornadoes that touched down in the Arkansas hamlet of Cincinnati on Friday.
