Sam Porter, director of Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief, and Anthony Jordan, BGCO executive director-treasurer, met Gov. Mary Fallin, Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak and others in Elk City, surveying tornado damage and connecting with people in the community.

Martin also told KSTP-TV that several turkey barns in the area also were hit hard.

Another tornado was captured on video near Mclean, Texas, though no injuries or significant damage were immediately reported.

Severe weather hit much of the USA stretching from Texas to the Great Lakes, killing at least two people and leaving devastation behind in several areas. The storm also brought numerous reports of large hail and strong winds.

At least one person was killed and an estimated 25 others were injured by a severe storm, including a tornado, that rolled through Barron County late Tuesday afternoon.

Those words summed up a news conference held Wednesday morning by Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald. One person was reported dead in Elk City, Okla., according to Associated Press reports. Eric Gavin was killed and about two dozen others were injured when the twister churned through the area Tuesday evening.

Shards of glass were flying at them like bullets, Tyson told the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram.

At least one baby was injured, he said.

US, South plotting to kill Kim Jong
When North Korea executed Kim's uncle, Jang Song Thaek, it accused him of plotting to overthrow Kim's government. CNN points out that South Korea's plans to kill Kim aren't secret - well not all of them.

The weather service says the twister packed winds of 120 to 130 miles per hour, or even slightly stronger, when it hit the park near Chetek on Tuesday evening.

"We ended up on the rubble, glass and stuff underneath us", said Gloria Myer, who lost her home.

Authorities say the victim who died when a tornado destroyed a mobile home park in northwestern Wisconsin was a 46-year-old man.

Rice Lake and Chetek sirens blared at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday as the sky turned dark and green.

The Elk City police chief told KWTV some people were trapped inside tornado-damaged homes. In Chetek, at least one person died after a tornado flattened a mobile home park. He said his sister also had a 2-month-old grandson, Nolan, in the home when the storm hit, and they had nowhere to go but the bathtub.

"We have a lot of teams out in the field right now, trying to assess the damage, trying to get folks as much help as they need and try to recover personal items, from the damage as quickly as possible", said Pritchard. A slight risk for severe storms surrounds Iowa, and includes Milwaukee; Kansas City, Missouri; and Omaha, Nebraska.

People impacted by tornadoes in Elk City were permitted to return to their homes with day passes valid between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. CDT on Wednesday.

Tuesday's storms were part of two supercells that formed in the Texas Panhandle before moving to the north and east. He thinks the park had about 50 homes.
