2 dead after tornadoes hit Oklahoma, Wisconsin

Storm chaser video captured a tornado on the ground near McLean, Texas, along the Interstate 40 corridor just west of the Oklahoma state line.

Elk City Public Schools were canceled for Wednesday, the school system said in a statement.

Authorities say at least one person died and an estimated 25 others were injured when a tornado struck a trailer park near Chetek in western Wisconsin. The Barron County Sheriff's Department says all other residents of the mobile home park are accounted for.

More storm chances are in the forecast later in the week and into the weekend.

Several tornado warnings were issued as severe thunderstorms moved east across western Wisconsin and northern Wisconsin as the night went on.

Gov. Mary Fallin plans to tour the damage to a western Oklahoma community that was struck by a tornado that killed a man.

Helicopter footage from News 9 in Oklahoma City showed extensive damage, as a large portion of a subdivision was destroyed by Tuesday's twister.

Scattered tornadoes have been reported in the nation's midsection.

By evening, the National Weather Service listed almost 20 reports of tornadoes from Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Wisconsin, although some of those could be multiple reports of the same tornado.
