ST. LOUIS (AP) ' A sudden, violent storm in southeast Missouri has left a man and his two adult sons dead.

Authorities are assessing the damage after high winds, heavy rain and hail ripped through parts of Missouri, Illinois and Kentucky late Monday. The worst hit is Diehlstadt, Mo., where winds blew over a mobile home, killing the three men. By Tuesday morning their names had not been released.

There were several reports of damage to homes in and around Diehlstadt, a town of 163 residents in Scott County about 100 miles south of St. Louis. The National Weather Service in Paducah, Ky., reported large hail, heavy rain and wind gusts of more than 50 mph in southern Illinois and Kentucky. No other injuries were immediately reported.
