WOODWARD, Okla. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- At least five people are confirmed dead after a tornado touched down in northwest Oklahoma.
The tornado that destroyed homes and took lives in Woodward, Okla., was just one of 88 reported tornadoes that touched down across the central United States Friday night through Sunday morning, according to the National Weather Service.
In addition to the five people reported killed in Woodward, 29 others were brought to the hospital. Five people were in critical condition.
Woodward Mayor Roscoe Hill said the tornado hit their town of 12,000 people in the middle Sunday. A tornado warning siren that had sounded a day earlier failed to go off when the suspected tornado struck, Hill said. He said it was unclear if the warning system was damaged by the storm.
Cars were tossed about, trees were toppled, and power lines were crushed and homes were leveled on the west side of town.
Crews are searching the rubble Sunday morning for anyone who might be trapped or killed.
Tornadoes also touched down in Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa. No deaths have been reported in those states as of now.
