At Least 12 Injured as Tornadoes Rip Across Plains

Tornadoes roared across the Plains on Wednesday, causing at least a dozen injuries, damage to homes and flash flooding in Oklahoma, NBC News reported. A cluster of tornadoes were reported across Kansas, Oklahoma and Nebraska, according to Nick Wiltgen, a senior meteorologist with The Weather Channel. At least 12 people were injured, two critically, when a tornado slammed two mobile home parks on the south side of Oklahoma City, while the severe storm damaged 10 to 15 homes near Grand Island, Nebraska. The wild weather knocked out power to more than 28,000 people across the state. Passengers at the Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City were evacuated from their terminals twice as dangerous storms approached the area. Kansas was also hit hard with a series of tornadoes, including a multi-vortex tornado that produced at least two twisters in Lincoln County. Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin was preparing an emergency declaration and is expected to tour hard hit areas on Thursday. Read »
