HARRISBURG, Ill. (AP) ' State officials are revising the death toll from a severe storm in southern Illinois, saying six people have been confirmed dead.

The Illinois Emergency Management Agency earlier reported that 10 were dead, but an agency spokeswoman says that was incorrect.

Lt. Tracy Felty of the Saline County Sherriff's Office also confirms the correct death toll is six. He says all of the victims were from the small town of Harrisburg, one of the areas hardest hit by the early morning storm.
