A tornado flattened parts of this resort town Monday, killing three people when it picked up a car outside a special education school and threw it hundreds of feet into the woods. Two students and a staffer at Eagleton School died when the car they were sitting in was thrown, said Bruce Bona, director of the school for the developmentally disabled. The tornado leveled one neighborhood, ripped up trees and forced the evacuation of a nursing home. At least 12 people were injured.
