Reuters reported that at least five people were killed on Sunday while some people were injured when a tornado hit a northwest city of Woodward, Oklahoma early on Sunday morning as tornadoes swept across the U.S. Plains states.

Tornadoes were spotted across the Midwest and Plains on Saturday damaging buildings and vehicles in Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and Oklahoma.

A number of people were reportedly injured in those incidents.

Iowa emergency officials said a large part of the town of Thurman in the western part of the state was destroyed Saturday night but luckily nobody was killed.

Weather forecasters warned that severe storms and more tornadoes touchdown is expected in the region for the rest of the weekend.

On Tuesday April 3, 2012,  a swarm of tornadoes hit Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas.

This is a disaster and I am very sorry for the victims.
