SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) ' Authorities believe an elderly woman sought refuge in a closet after storms passed through Kentucky last week but died after the door handle fell off, trapping her inside for days.

Somerset police Lt. Shannon Smith says officers found the body of 74-year-old Helen Placke on Monday inside the hall closet of her home. Somerset is about 75 miles south of Lexington, Ky.

State officials said Wednesday that 23 people died after tornadoes spawned by Friday's storms struck the state.
