KANSAS CITY, Missouri  — Shaken residents spent New Year's Day sifting through the wreckage wrought by tornadoes  that touched down in several US states in the final hours of 2010, killing seven people in two states and injuring dozens of others.

Six of the victims — three in Missouri and three in Arkansas — died Friday as tornadoes fueled by unusually warm air pummeled the South and Midwest. A seventh victim who was injured Friday near the south-central Missouri town of Rolla died Saturday at a hospital in Columbia, said Bruce Southard, the chief of the Rolla Rural Fire Department.

The woman, whose name wasn't immediately released, was entertaining a friend, Alice Cox, 69, of Belle, Missouri, in her trailer when the twister hit.
