A father and two children in a trailer, plus two other people who were in a car in the same Oklahoma town, were killed when a string of tornadoes tore through parts of the Midwest on Saturday and early Sunday, CNN reported.
Those fatalities in Woodward are the only ones known to have resulted from this weekend's storms. But millions of people were bracing for even more severe weather late Sunday afternoon and night.
The agency has received 126 reports of possible tornado touchdowns Saturday and early Sunday in Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa.
Local media reported that Spirit Aerosystems Inc., a Boeing airplane manufacturer, had also been hit, with reports of structural damage and that hazardous chemicals had leaked out. One picture circulating on Twitter showed a picture of a broken airplane fuselage, the Los Angeles Times reported.
