Midwest tornadoes, storms
cause damage, injury, death
Boeing 737 crashes on its way
to Russia,killing 50 passengers
At least three
people are dead in
CHICAGO (AP) - Dozens
of tornadoes and intense thun-
derstorms swept across the
Midwest on Sunday, causing
extensive damage in several
central Illinois communities,
killing at least three people
and prompting officials at Chi-
cago's Soldier Field to evacuate
the stands and delay the Bears
"The whole neighborhood's
gone. The wall of my fireplace
is all that is left of my house,"
said Michael Perdun, speaking
by cellphone from the hard-hit
town of Washington, where
he said his neighborhood was
wiped out inamatter of seconds.
"I stepped outside and I
heard it coming. My daughter
was already in the basement, so
I ran downstairs and grabbed
her, crouched in the laundry
room and all of a sudden I could
see daylight up the stairway and
my house was gone."
An elderly man and his sister
were killed when a tornado hit
their home around noon in the
rural community of New Min-
den, said Mark Styninger, the
coroner of Washington County
in southern Illinois. A third
person diedin Washington, said
Melanie Arnold of the Illinois
Emergency Management Agen-
cy. She did not provide details.
By mid-afternoon, with com-
munications difficult and many
roads impassable, it remained
unclear how many people were
killed or hurt by the string of
tornadoes. In a news release,
the Illinois National Gnard said
it had dispatched 10 firefighters
and three vehicles to Washing-
ton to assist with immediate
search and recovery operations.
"I went over there immedi-
ately after the tornado, walking
through the neighborhoods, and
I couldn't even tell what street I
was on," Washington Alderman
Tyler Gee told WLS-TV. _
"Just completely flattened -
some of the neighborhoods here
in town, hundreds of homes."
Steve Brewer, chief operat-
ing officer at Methodist Medi-
cal Center of Illinois in Peoria,
said 14 people had come to the
hospital seeking treatment for
minor injuries, while another
Washington area hospital had
received about 15 patients.
Plane caught on
fire while landing
at Kazan airport
MOSCOW (AP) - A Boeing
737 jetliner crashed and burst into
flames Sunday night while trying
toland at the airport in the Russian
city of Kazan, killing all 5o people
aboard in the latest in a string of
deadly crashes across the country.
The Tatarstan Airlines plane
was trying to make a second
landing attempt when it touched
the surface of the runway near
the control tower, and was
"destroyed and caught fire," said
SergeiIzvolky, the spokesman for
the Russian aviation agency.
The Emergencies Ministry
said there were 44 passengers
and six crew members aboard the
evening flight from Moscow and
all had been killed. Kazan, a city
of about 1.1 million and the capi-
tal of the Tatarstan republic, is
about 720 kilometers (450 miles)
east of the capital.
The ministry released a list
of the dead, which included
Irek Minnikhanov, the son of
Tatarstan's governor, and Alex-
ander Antonov, who headed the
Tatarstan branch of the Federal
Security Service, the main succes-
sor agency tothe Soviet-eraKGB.
Some Russian air crashes have
been blamed on the use of aging
aircraft, but industry experts
point to a number of other prob-
lems, including poor crew train-
ing, crumbling airports, lax
government controls and wide-
spread neglect of safety in the
pursuit of profits.
The Emergencies Ministry
released photographs from the
nighttime scene showing parts of
the aircraft and debris scattered
across the ground. Ambulances
lined up in front of the airport
It was not clear why the plane's
first landing attempt was unsuc-
cessful. Boeing said it would
provide assistance to the investi-
gation into the cause.
"Boeing's thoughts are with
those affected by the crash," the
company said in a statement on
A journalist who said she had
flown on the same aircraft from
Kazan to Moscow's Domodedo-
vo airport earlier in the day told
Channel One state television that
the landing in Moscow had been
frightening because of a strong
vibration during the final min-
utes of the flight.
