TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Authorities say one person was killed and a church collapsed in southeast Kansas as heavy thunderstorms swept through the region.

Details were not immediately available on the death early Friday in Wilson County as severe weather pushed through Fredonia and New Albany.

The county's emergency management division said wind reached speeds up to 120 mph, collapsing the New Albany Methodist Church and knocking out power in southeast and south-central Kansas.

Strong storms in southern Missouri were blamed for widespread damage, including a large section of KSNF-TV's tower falling on two homes in Joplin. No one was hurt.
