Good evening,

A positive attitude and a twist of fate may turn out to be the combination that keeps a Heartland man alive. Tonight on Heartland News at 10, Todd Tumminia will tell you about Jerry Brey and his neighbor Dr. Andrew Moore.

The National Weather Service has confirmed a tornado north of Hwy. 51 bypass near the Kentucky border and behind the Goodyear Tire Plant and Woodland Hills community. Lilbourn, Mo. is currently under a curfew from dusk to dawn because of the flooding. Overnight storms have caused major flooding in several areas. Some RVs were stranded at Twin Bridges Campground in Bollinger County, Mo.; the sewer service was knocked out near Malden, Mo. and several water rescues were made in the Heartland.

Viewers have sent us pictures of the flooding on Sunday, April 27 and Monday, April 28. You can click here to see a slideshow of the pictures.

Lightning is believed to be the cause of an overnight fire in Morley, according to Scott County Rural Fire Chief Jeremy Perrien. He said the fire broke out around 11:15 p.m. and crews were on the scene until around 2 a.m.

In national news, three fatalities have been confirmed in a massive storm system that includes fast-moving tornadoes pushing through Mississippi and Alabama on Monday. Tornadoes have caused damage to the northern part of Tupelo, MS and north Alabama as line of powerful storms moved east toward Tennessee and Georgia.

Sally Carlisle of Bertrand has been appointed as the new public administrator for Mississippi County. Gov. Jay Nixon appointed Carlisle. The position became available upon the death earlier this year of the former public administrator, Rick Reed.

A federal criminal complaint has charged a former Illinois state representative with possession of child pornography. Sixty-six-year-old Keith Farnham has not been arrested.

Three people were taken to the hospital Monday morning when police say a man crashed his vehicle into a school bus in Graves County. The man, a 16-year-old and a 9-year-old were taken to the hospital.
