Oklahoma is ripped apart by a multi-vortex tornado.
During a period of extreme weather, tornadoes wreaked havoc on Oklahoma. While conditions are likely to improve over the next 24 hours, severe thunderstorms are expected.
On Tuesday evening, two supercell storms created several tornadoes in the west of the state in Kiowa County and north of Clinton, Custer County, two days after thousands in Oklahoma were left without power due to gusts of up to 70 mph, according to KFOR Chief Meteorologist Mike Morgan.
By the time it impacted the town of Odetta at around 8.15 p.m. CDT, a cone-shaped tornado between the towns of Cash and Snyder had turned into a multi-vortex tornado, Morgan said.
