OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The National Weather Service says more severe storms could hit Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois tonight.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — National Transportation Safety Board member Robert Sumwalt says there's evidence that something hit the windshield of the Amtrak train that derailed last week. Appearing on CBS's "Face the Nation," Sumwalt said he wanted to "downplay" the idea that damage to the windshield might have come from someone firing a shot at the train. He says the "fracture pattern" on the windshield suggests that something the size of a grapefruit hit it, though it didn't completely penetrate it.
