Hannibal native's film draws rave reviews

Sunday, 17 November 2013 09:07 Published in Local News

HANNIBAL, Mo. (AP) — A northeast Missouri native's short film, a very personal account of childhood abuse, is drawing rave reviews.

Gretl Claggett now lives in New York but grew up in Hannibal, a Mississippi River town best known as the hometown of Mark Twain. The Hannibal Courier-Post reports that her film, "Happy Hour," was the winner for excellence in cinematography at the International Film Festival of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles last month.

The 14-minute film, narrated by actress Julianne Moore, is based on Claggett's poem about the sexual abuse she suffered as a child from a family friend.

CHICAGO (AP) — A number of Midwestern states are awakening to the threat of a high risk of severe thunderstorms.

The National Weather Service says parts of Illinois, Indiana, southern Michigan and western Ohio are at the greatest risk of seeing tornadoes, large hail and damaging winds Sunday.

The agency says strong winds and atmospheric instability will sweep across the Central Plains during the day before pushing into the Mid-Atlantic states and northeast by evening.

It says the potential for strong and long-track tornadoes will center on the Ohio Valley and adjacent Midwestern states.

Many of the storms are expected to become supercells, with the potential to produce tornadoes, large hail and destructive winds.

The weather service says local and state authorities are monitoring the weather.
