Tornadoes Rip Across Midwestern United States

Nearly three dozen homes were destroyed Wednesday after a series of tornadoes struck the midwestern U.S. states of Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska Wednesday.
The damage mainly occurred in Oklahoma, especially on the outskirts of the capital, Oklahoma City. Officials say at least 35 homes were destroyed by a tornado that hit southwest of Oklahoma City Wednesday afternoon, and reportedly caused damage at a tiger zoo.

A second tornado that struck late Wednesday night turned over several vehicles on a major roadway and downed nearby power lines.

So far there have been no reports of injuries or fatalities.

The storms also dumped several centimeters of rain on Oklahoma City, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a flash flood emergency.
