"This is, I think in terms of outright damage, both physical in terms of what it did to the landscape, but also in terms of the damage destroying people's homes I think it's the worst I've seen as governor".

The National Weather Service has received scattered reports of tornadoes among the severe thunderstorms rumbling Tuesday afternoon over the Texas Panhandle and western Oklahoma, downing power lines and toppling utility poles but having little other effect. Martin also said several turkey barns in the area were also hit hard.

"I've lived in Oklahoma nearly 50 years", he said.

Daily says he walked among the debris and helped free a man who was buried under a refrigerator and debris. At this time, all residents of the mobile home park have been accounted for. More than 25 people were injured, the state said, without giving their conditions. Homes and structures were severely damaged as separate EF2 twisters struck a mobile home park in Wisconsin and a subdivision in Oklahoma. According to the Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs, about 40 trailer homes were destroyed by the tornado.

According to the National Weather Service, almost 300 preliminary severe weather reports filed in from Wisconsin to Texas, spanning Tuesday afternoon to early Wednesday.

In eastern Nebraska, winds damaged homes, farms and businesses and left thousands of people without electricity. He said he had to leave his mobile home about 6 miles southwest of Elk City to seek shelter, Manning said. The Iowa State Patrol said the strong winds knocked over some semitrailers on Interstate 29, which runs north-south along the Missouri River.

"This was a supercell that developed, a discrete storm", he said Tuesday night. National Weather Service meteorologist Tom Hultquist said the storms covered so much ground and were so powerful because of a combination of factors, including the dry Texas air that fed them and strong winds in the Great Lakes area.

The region could be in for more potentially damaging storms.

In the Tulsa area, severe storms are expected Thursday night and early Friday morning.

Throughout Wednesday night, Pritchard says they will continue to monitor keep everyone up to date on the severe weather, to make sure everyone is taking the right safety precautions.
