Midwest Awash After Heavy Storms
Storms have continued to drench the Midwest which is already enduring record floods that are reported to have killed at least 25 people. Meanwhile, a heatwave in southeastern states is also setting records and has been blamed for a similar death toll. States from Iowa to Texas have all been deluged, some suffering the aftermath of Tropical Storm Erin, followed by other heavy storm systems. More heavy rain is forecase in Illinois, prompting flood warnings.
