Tornadoes kill five in US Midwest
Tornadoes have hit a large swathe of the US Midwest, killing at least five people in Oklahoma, officials say.
Twisters were also reported in Kansas, Iowa, and Nebraska as the storm front swept east.
The deaths occurred before dawn in the town of Woodward, Oklahoma, after warning sirens failed to sound, officials said.
A tornado there caused extensive damage, mainly in the west of the town. At least 29 people were injured.
The National Weather Service had forecast further tornadoes early Sunday morning, with concern they could strike as people slept.
Officials feared people would not hear warnings as they slept and said that it was more difficult for weather spotters to track the funnel clouds overnight.
Rescue teams searched rubble for people trapped or wounded in Woodward, where high winds damaged homes, uprooted trees and brought down electricity lines, the Associated Press reported.
