Monday November 18, 2013 Happening Now - Deadly Weather Outbreak Across At Least 12 States

For the first time in a long while, Obamacare may not be the lead today!

Wicked weather smashing through at least 12 states. Illinois hit the hardest with multiple tornadoes reported across the state. At least six are dead. Many more are injured. We still don't know how bad the damage is across Missouri, Indiana, Ohio and Illinois which were hardest-hit. The weather system still causing trouble for the East Coast. We've got team coverage: Garrett Tenney and Mike Tobin in Illinois. Maria Molina and Janice Dean in the extreme weather center.
