Multiple large tornadoes are causing destructions around Central US. The first tornado for the day was confirmed in Oklahoma and is heading towards Missouri.


As reported by Accuweather, significant hails, gale force winds, and torrential downpours will also lead to an elevated risk of flooding.

Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski says: "Aggravated flooding is a significant concern in southeastern Kansas, northeastern Oklahoma and southwestern Missouri."

The National Weather Service in Norman, Oklahoma, found evidence of five tornadoes in the surrounding area. They are still investigating others from the outbreak.


Stormchaser John Sirlin was headed towards Joplin when he recorded footage of the tornado. He shared the video on Twitter:

An Arkansas River town was ordered to evacuate earlier today, and multiple evacuation orders have since been issued for towns in the tornado's path.


Residents of Webber Falls are urged to seek safe ground and to write their names and personal information on their arms to assist rescue workers if the need arises.

The situation has been described as life-threatening, and those who choose to ignore the evacuation orders will be placing their lives at risk.

Several evacuation orders were also issued for towns in Oklahoma:
