JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) __ A Missouri housing commission is considering possible help for people affected by some of the natural disasters that have hit the state recently.

The Missouri Housing Development Commission was expected to vote Thursday on a proposal that would allot $100 million worth of tax credits to develop rental housing for low-income residents in Joplin and St. Louis County.

A tornado that struck Joplin on May 22 killed 160 people and damaged or destroyed about 8,000 homes and businesses. The St. Louis area was also hit by a damaging tornado in April.
