(Worthy News) - The National Weather Service (NWS) said as many as 55 tornadoes may have touched down overnight across eight states stretching eastward from Idaho and Colorado. Storm reports posted online by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Storm Prediction Center said 14 suspected tornadoes touched down in Indiana, 12 in Colorado and nine in Ohio. Seven were reported in Iowa, five in Nebraska, four in Illinois, three in Minnesota, and one in Idaho.
Residents of the Midwestern U.S. states of Ohio and Indiana were sifting through the ravages of a series of powerful tornadoes that killed at least one person, injured more than 130 others, and destroyed homes, schools and businesses.
According to NWS, Tuesday was the 12th consecutive day where multiple tornadoes were reported in the United States. While the high number of twisters is not unusual, but they are typically not as widespread. [ Source: VOA News (Read More...) ]
