Tornadoes Rip Through Oklahoma, Nebraska And Iowa, Here Are The Scenes

Deadly tornadoes ripped through the Midwest, causing significant structural damage along with taking the lives of four people and leaving over 100 hundred people injured.

All four reported deaths from the tornadoes stemmed from Oklahoma.

In Sulpher, Oklahoma, the tornado completely leveled the Marietta hospital.

Here are some scenes of the deadly tornado’s path:

NPR added more details to the story:

At least four people were killed and at least 100 were injured after a string of tornadoes barreled through parts of the South and Midwest on Friday and into the weekend.

Recovery efforts are underway after severe weather devastated parts of Oklahoma, Nebraska and Iowa, turning homes and other buildings into heaps of lumber and rubble.

So far, all four people who are confirmed killed were in Oklahoma: one in the town of Sulphur, one man and a child in Holdenville and one near Marietta. KOSU reported that Sulphur’s downtown was “essentially leveled” and a Marietta hospital was destroyed.

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt visited Sulphur on Sunday afternoon. “I’ve seen a lot of damage. But what I saw in downtown Sulphur – it’s unbelievable. It seems like every business in downtown has been destroyed,” he said, according to KOSU.

One hundred injuries have been reported by hospitals in the state, according to the Oklahoma State Department of Health. At least 30 people were injured in Sulphur, KOCO reported.

Check out what The Associated Press reported:

Residents began sifting through the rubble Saturday after a tornado plowed through suburban Omaha, Nebraska, demolishing homes and businesses as it moved for miles through farmland and into subdivisions, then slamming an Iowa town.

Dozens of reported tornadoes wreaked havoc Friday in the Midwest, causing a building to collapse with dozens of people inside and destroying and damaging at least 150 homes in Omaha alone.

But no fatalities were reported, and fewer than two dozen people were treated at Omaha-area hospitals, said Dr. Lindsay Huse, health director of the city’s Douglas County Health Department.

“Miraculous” she said, stressing that none of the city’s injuries were serious. Neighboring communities reported a handful of injuries each.
