NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Another victim of the tornados that swept across the Midwest earlier this week has died.
The devastation and sheer magnitude of the storms is hard to comprehend.
Scenes of destruction are spread across five states.
Hundreds of homes and businesses were destroyed.
At least 13 lives were lost, six in the small town of Harrisburg, Illinois when a tornado packing 180 mile-per-hour winds struck the town.
