Over 100 tornadoes ripped through the midwest throughout Saturday night, leaving residents traumatized, CBS News reported.
In Oklahoma, 29 people were injured and five have been found dead, including three children under the age of ten, ABC News reported.
More fatalities were expected because the storm ripped out a transmitter, leaving residents of Woodward, Okla., without warning as they slept, Woodward City Manager Alan Riffel said, according to ABC News.
The twisters, which were accompanied by large hail, downpours and lightning, were reported in Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa.
As they move east throughout Sunday they are weakening, but still threaten Minnesota, Illinois and eastern Iowa, ABC News reported. Forecasters warned dangerous thunderstorms could reach as far east as Michigan, CBS News reported.
