OKLAHOMA CITY — An outbreak of tornadoes swept through several states in the Midwest.

The worst damage appears to be in Oklahoma City.

Dozens of homes were destroyed after two storms came through the area.

The second one came Wednesday night, throwing down power lines and flipping over dozens of cars.

No deaths are being reported but a dozen people from a trailer park were taken to the hospital.

A tornado also hit a zoo, but all the animals are accounted for.

The main airport was closed, and the city issued a flash flood emergency for the first time in its history.

Storms damaged up to 15 homes in Nebraska.

At least nine tornadoes were reported in Kansas, where homes, barns, and trees were damaged.

More severe weather could hit the area today.
