The home of Phyllis Rawlins is destroyed home in Kokomo, Ind., Monday, Nov. 18, 2013. Sunday's storm picked up Rawlins' Victorian-style house and moved it about 100 feet, leaving a 15-foot pile of debris on nearby train tracks. Rawlins says her granddaughter and about five other members of a church group fled to the basement when the storm hit. She says her granddaughter suffered a broken ankle, and the other youths had cuts and broken bones. (AP Photo/AJ Mast)

An unusually powerful late-season wave of thunderstorms brought damaging winds and tornadoes to 12 states: Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and western New York.

Illinois was the hardest hit, with at least six people killed and dozens more injured. Authorities said Monday that two other deaths occurred in Michigan.

Here is a gallery of images from the areas hit by tornadoes.
