Storms pummel central US, as tornadoes kill at least 2

The storms hit Wisconsin late Tuesday afternoon and into the evening, leveling the Prairie Lake Estate Mobile Park near Chetek, which is about 110 miles (177 kilometers) northeast of Minneapolis.

The storm then headed toward the small central Kansas town of Pawnee Rock, where a home was destroyed. But Fire Chaplain Danny Ringer told reporters at the scene late Tuesday that one person was known dead from the twister.

A team from the National Weather Service is expected to arrive in Chetek Wednesday morning to assess the damage and make a final determination on the severity of the tornado.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs, the National Weather Service will send Damage Survey Teams to the area on Wednesday morning to assess the locations, strengths and numbers of tornadoes.

He said every single trailer here is damaged to some degree, and as of Tuesday night, no one is being allowed back in to area. He said at least one child was among the injured.

"He had some bad head trauma going on and I didn't want him to go to sleep", Daily said.

Most of the damage is isolated south of I-35, missing a heavily populated neighborhood by about a mile.

On Tuesday, Trump defended the sharing of information during the meeting, saying he had "the absolute right to do" so. That's because in the United States, the system of classifying information has no legal basis.

"It was just chaos". The size of that search has been scaled back, but it still continues at this hour because the sheriff said there are people who live in Prairie Lake Estates trailer court who are unaccounted for.

Several poultry barns at a turkey processing plant across the street were badly damaged, and turkeys could be seen wandering in the debris.

Barton County spokeswoman Donna Zimmerman said the tornado that formed near Pawnee Rock remained on the ground for up to 15 miles (24 kilometers) before dissipating. She said initial reports were that it was more than 400 feet (120 meters) wide, and that it was "very fortunate" that it didn't strike in a more populated area. Lightning blew siding and bricks off a home in Lincoln and a funnel cloud was spotted about 40 miles (65 kilometers) southwest of the city, near Exeter, but no damage was reported. Trees were uprooted, power lines were knocked down, and roofs were ripped off of homes.

Two hours later than in Wisconsin, the storm hit Oklahoma at 7.15pm on Tuesday.

Two people were killed Tuesday, May 16, 2017- one in Wisconsin and another in Oklahoma - following tornadoes and severe storms that ripped through several states. The Storm Prediction Center has placed much of Iowa in its enhanced risk zone for severe storms.

Moreno reported from Milwaukee.
