Two killed in USA tornadoes

Tornadoes reportedly touched down in four other states in the central USA, including Texas, Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma, where another man was killed.

Barton County spokeswoman Donna Zimmerman said the tornado that formed near Pawnee Rock remained on the ground for up to 15 miles (24 kilometers) before dissipating. She says initial reports were that it was more than 400 feet (120 meters) wide.

Clean up is underway but the Sheriff Fitzgerald says "The mobile home park is on private property, so it's ultimately left to the residents to pick up".

More than 27 people were injured in all and 17 of them were taken by ambulances to hospitals.

That park was the scene of major devastation after a supercell brought with it hail, wind, rain and a tornado late afternoon on Tuesday.

Gary Schulz, who owns a rental storage business near the Prairie Lake Estate Mobile Home Park, said a twister claimed his business eight years ago but spared it this time around. Officials are now assessing what affected residents may need.

A tornado touched down in Rusk County, located in northwest Wisconsin. The tornado swept into the mobile home p.

He said police pulled people out of their trailers, ones who were trapped.

Possible tornadoes were spotted over Weyerhaeuser, Wisconsin, near McLean, Texas, and in Bucklin, Kansas, Tuesday.

CBS Oklahoma City affiliate KWTV reports the person who was killed was in a auto.

Director Sam Porter said the operation's trained volunteers are assessing damage in Elk City.

By evening, the National Weather Service listed more than 20 reports of tornadoes from Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Wisconsin, although some of those could be multiple reports of the same tornado.

There, high winds destroyed some homes and several outbuildings.

The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management remains activated due to the effects of severe weather and the threat for continued severe weather this week, officials said in a news release.

The severe storm that hit the Chetek area started to develop about two hours earlier in the St. Paul area, according to meterologist Mike Griesinger of the National Weather Service in Chanhassen, Minn.

Scattered tornadoes have been reported in the nation's midsection.

Rescue workers who shed softball uniforms and dress clothes and put on their fire gear raced to the scene Monday and went door to door to rescue people, Fitzgerald said.

No dollar amount of damage is available yet, according to Ken Daughtry with the Wheeler County OEM, as they are still in the process of determining all the damage. Martin also said several turkey barns in the area were also hit hard.

Another person died in Elk City, Oklahoma, from a devastating tornado that ripped through the town. He added that the storm totally wrecked 40 homes and 75 severely damaged another 50 to 75.

A tornado also ripped through a mobile home park near the northwestern Wisconsin city of Chetek, about 110 miles (180 kilometers) northeast of Minneapolis. He thinks the park had about 50 homes.

The Salvation Army, Red Cross and the Barron County Health and Human Services Departments were working on relief efforts.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald also said it's a miracle more people weren't killed in the storm.

In Oklahoma, another tornado damaged much of a subdivision on the southern fringe of Elk City.
