Several Missouri communities continue to clean up after deadly tornadoes ripped through the state.

Missouri State Emergency Management Agency spokesman Mike O'Connell says all three people who died in the Wednesday morning twisters were in mobile homes.

Cleanup will take weeks in the popular tourism town of Branson, where five or six theaters were badly damaged along with more than a dozen hotels or motels. The tornado traveled along Country 76 Boulevard. Still, officials in Branson say the town is open for business.

In Dallas County, concerns were raised about a lack of tornado sirens in the rural area where a trailer park was destroyed. Forty-two-year-old Angie Jenkins died in that twister. County officials say there simply isn't enough money to place warning sirens throughout the county.
