Governor Matt Blunt ordered fifty soldiers from the Missouri National Guard to help with tornado recovery efforts in Missouri.

The Storms that ripped through the Southern Missouri town of Caruthersville Sunday left one person dead and destroyed much of the city.

Guard spokesperson Captain Tammy Spicer says the troops will assist local authorities with security.

"The Missouri National Guard is known as a home town guard and so this is an opportunity for soldiers in Southeast Missouri to help their neighbors."

Spicer says troops will spend at least three days in Caruthersville. From the state capitol, I'm Tim Walker.
