Floods hit central U.S. states after a tornado series

Power lines was cut and a lot of buildings damaged due to thunderstorms and floods that battered several central U.S. states after a tornado series hit the same area a day earlier.

Power lines was cut and a lot of buildings damaged due to thunderstorms and floods that battered several central U.S. states after a tornado series hit the same area a day earlier.

The National Weather Service stated that Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee and Kansas have been already flooded or flash flood warned on Sunday morning after the part of central U.S. was hit by severe thunderstorms.

Due to flooding on the Fishing River in Missouri , the town located some 25 miles northeast of Kansas City, which is called Mosby and populated with approximately 200 people, was partially evacuated. The river has also shut roads, according to the Clay County Sheriff’s office.

The weather service said that the flood warnings were announced after they got near 30 dozen reports about tornadoes that hit the area from Louisiana to Wyoming on Saturday.

The most seriously were hit Texas and Oklahoma, although no reports of sizable destruction or deaths appeared to be on Sunday morning. However the storm caused damaging of a majority of power lines, so thousands were without power.

Keli Cain, a spokeswoman of Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management, stated that they haven’t had any injuries reported yet. She also added that Oklahoma was damaged mostly in the southwestern and northeastern parts of the state.

A flash flood watch has been also issued for south-central part of Pennsylvania, according to the National Weather Service.
