Parts of the Ozarks have been sifting through the damage from Friday’s storms that killed four people around the state. Tornadoes were confirmed at Table Rock Lake and in Christian and Webster counties. One tornado with winds of at least 136 mph ripped through the Fort Leonard Wood area, injuring three people.
