SCOTT COUNTY, Mo. (KFVS/CNN) - Violent winds tore through southeast Missouri Tuesday night, leaving a big mess behind.

The severe weather managed to overturn four dozen train cars in Scott County.

The Union Pacific Railroad says the 112 car train was heading from Chicago to Mexico, hauling auto parts.

No one was hurt in the wreck, but officials say about 800 feet of track will have to be replaced.
