Death Toll from Friday's Storms Remains at 39
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An Indiana man says he held hands and prayed with a family of five, just before they were killed in Friday's tornado in New Pekin.
Jason Miller tells NBC's "Today" show from his hospital bed that he took 15-month-old Angel Babcock and her family into his home right before the tornado that sucked all of them into the air.
The toddler was found alive in a field, but died two days later.
The death toll from Friday's storms stands at 39.
Snow has fallen today in some of the same areas already staggered by last week's deadly tornadoes. Forecasters say they expect a quick warm-up after the storms move away today.
