EL RENO, Okla. – Violent storms with winds of more than 150 mph slammed into a chunk of the central U.S. overnight, killing at least 13 people in three states, flattening homes, crushing cars and ripping apart a rural Arkansas fire station.
The high-powered storms arrived Tuesday night and early Wednesday, just days after a massive tornado tore up the southwest Missouri city of Joplin and killed 122 people.
At least 15 people died in Arkansas, Kansas and Oklahoma in the latest round of severe weather to strike the U.S. heartland, authorities said Wednesday, in what has already become a historic spring storm season.
Ten of the latest deaths were in Oklahoma, three were in Arkansas and two were in Kansas, authorities said.
