The figure is expected to rise as more tornadoes are predicted to hit Trotwood in Ohio and Kansas City area.

One resident, Francis Dutmers, told reporters that he heard a very loud roar. The storm blew out windows and felled most of the trees on his property. He said:

"I just got down on all fours and covered my head with my hands."

Earlier this week, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) urged residents to steer clear of downtown Dayton:

"Avoid I-75 north of downtown Dayton. Our crews are assisting with debris clean up from a tornado that hit about an hour ago. Please give them and emergency crews room to work."

There were about 55 twisters that touched down across eight states, stretching eastward from Idaho and Colorado since the first outbreak on 26 May.

Earlier today, a large tornado touched down on the western edge of Kansas City, Kansas, and was headed toward a heavily populated and popular entertainment and shopping area.
