OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Damage from a tornado that struck Jefferson City overnight was concentrated in a 3-mile square area in the southern part of the city.
    
Jefferson City Police Lt David Williams said there are no reports of missing people in the city, but authorities will be making door-to-door checks Thursday.
    
Williams said no deaths were reported in Jefferson City from the storm that hit the state's capital shortly before midnight on Wednesday. About 20 people have been rescued.
    
The storm damaged the roof of a state labor department building but the Capitol and governor's mansion were not damaged.
    
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson surveyed the hardest hit areas in Jefferson City on Thursday and called the damage "devastating."
