Tornadoes rip through parts of US states, also injuring dozens and destroying homes and buildings.
At least one person was killed and dozens were injured after tornadoes ripped through parts of Texas and Oklahoma, leaving homes and buildings demolished.
Tornadoes hit the southeastern corner of Oklahoma, McCurtain County, hard on Friday. County Emergency Manager Cody McDaniel confirmed one death.
A church, a medical center and a school were also destroyed in the small town of Idabel.
“There was total destruction on the south and east sides of Idabel,” Steven Carter, emergency management coordinator for McCurtain County, told the Texarkana Gazette. Carter added that some people were still trapped.
Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt said search and rescue teams and generators were being dispatched to the Idabel area, adding that flash flooding had occurred in some areas.
“Praying for Oklahomans affected by today’s tornadoes,” Stitt tweeted.
