Tornado touches down in Oklahoma, no injuries reported

The weather service's Storm Prediction Center in Oklahoma said storms with the potential to spawn tornadoes and dump large hail stones could hit the region Thursday.

In the aerial footage of the damage, it's hard to tell where structures once stood.

The weather service said it received reports of more than two dozen tornado sightings Tuesday night across the five states of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Wisconsin. Some people remain trapped in their homes.

Governor Scott Walker declared a State of Emergency for Barron, Jackson, and Rusk counties following severe storms producing heavy rain, damaging winds, hail, and tornadoes.

Pioneer Bank in Ladysmith and Ladysmith Federal have set up funds for county residents impacted by the tornado.

As of late Tuesday evening, 22 tornadoes have been reported to the Storm Prediction Center.

Taylor County: County officials say several power poles and lines are down in the Stetsonville area. The forecast bull's-eye of the storm includes Wichita, Kansas, and rural areas of southern Kansas and western Oklahoma. So far there have been no reports of damage or injuries at this time.

The storm also knocked out telephone service into and out of the city, while school officials have canceled classes for Wednesday.

Several poultry barns at a turkey processing plant across the street were badly damaged, and turkeys could be seen wandering in the debris.

The Red Cross and Salvation Army are assisting those who lost their homes.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald described the scene at Prairie Lakes Estates mobile home park as "total devastation" and said first responders could hear people yelling for help when they arrived.

Another tornado flattened much of a subdivision on the southern fringe of Elk City, Oklahoma, about 110 miles (180 kilometers) west of Oklahoma City.

Seever said that Gavin worked at the turkey farm across the road from his mobile home that was also slammed by the storm. Part of a building sits on a vehicle after a tornado ripped through Prairie Lake Estates trailer home park, just north of Chetek, Wis., Tuesday, May 16, 2017. Fire Chaplain Danny Ringer told reporters at the scene late Tuesday that one person was known dead from the twister, although few details were available.
