Tornado damages homes in Linwood, Kansas

Tornado damages homes in Linwood, Kansas

Parts of Pennsylvania and New Jersey were also under tornado warnings hours after a swarm of tightly packed twisters swept through IN and OH overnight, smashing homes, blowing out windows and ending the school year early for some students because of damage to buildings.

She told CBS Kansas City affiliate KCTV there are no immediate reports of injuries.

At least three tornadoes are believed to have caused swaths of devastation Monday night in western Ohio. Rescue and recovery missions are expected to continue well into the night, with a number of homes in northern Linwood yet to be searched due to inaccessibility.

Trump said he spoke with Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt about the devastating storms.

Tornadoes have swept the USA over the last two weeks as a volatile mix of warm, moist air from the south-east and persistent cold from the Rockies clashed and stalled over the midwest, weather experts say.

On Tuesday evening, the weather service warned that storms, which could possibly produce "a few tornadoes", hail and winds greater than 60 miles per hour, were developing near the Topeka, Kan., area.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Storm Prediction Center showed that 14 suspected tornadoes touched down in IN, 11 in Colorado and nine in Ohio.

Areas around Kearney and Excelsior Springs were hit with 115 mph winds as the tornado traveled along a path just under 6 miles.

Media reports said that at least one tornado hit Dayton, Ohio, and at least two others touched down near the city, including one near the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

The Ohio Department of Transportation asked drivers to avoid Interstate 75 north of downtown Dayton because of debris scattered on the highway.

In the east, multiple tornado warnings were issued for New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Towns outside of Dayton, including Beavercreek and Northwood, were among those hit the hardest.

"I had a plan for years", said Mr Duffin, ...

"I'm just glad I found my two dogs alive", he said. But he and his wife were not injured and the house is still livable, he said.

It wasn't immediately clear whether there were injuries or what the extent of the damage is. Payne attributed the good news to people heeding early warnings about the storm. Sirens went off ahead of the storm.

Mayor Nan Whaley urged people to check on their neighbors, especially those who are housebound.

Three powerful storms that caused widespread damage in the Dayton area severely damaged the church in Vandalia where 63-year-old Mike Harrington works. The company said 64,000 of its customers alone were without power. The Montgomery County Twitter account released a statement advising residents about ongoing emergency efforts. Two people reportedly suffered minor injuries but were not taken to the hospital.

Recently, residents in Twin Lakes have been scrambling to save their belongings as 10 homes fell into the Cimarron River.

"People are getting antsy. I know they want to get outdoors, and I know they want to see what's going on in the neighborhood", Harmeson said.

Pendleton High School was opened as a shelter for the community, where more than 3,500 homes and businesses were without power and utility crews were at work repairing downed power lines. One person was also injured in Indiana.

This year, those numbers doubled and researchers say there was a tornado somewhere in the Sooner State for six consecutive days between May 20 and May 25.

With June just days away, the National Weather Service is looking back at the volatile weather Oklahoma experienced during the month of May.

Additional storm damage was reported in Berks County, Pennsylvania where reports of damage came from the city of Morgantown.
