Tornadoes devastate places across the United States

At least 60 hurricanes have caused severe damage in the USA. However, most residents of the affected areas got off largely unscathed. According to experts, further storms could follow.

Several tornadoes have caused extensive damage in the American Midwest. The city of Omaha and its surroundings in the state of Nebraska were hit particularly hard. Hundreds of houses were damaged there, local media reported, citing the police. Of some houses only rubble remains. Photos and videos showed buildings of which only a mountain of rubble remained. In addition, the power went out in thousands of households.

There are also reports of some injuries, but no deaths have been reported so far. “We were very fortunate that there were very few injuries,” said Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer. The warning systems in the city, which has around half a million inhabitants, worked well. That saved people's lives.

In Lancaster County, about 70 people were rescued from an industrial building that collapsed in the storm, the reports said. Three people were injured. On its destructive path, a tornado moved across the Missouri River into the neighboring state of Iowa. There he caused serious damage in the small town of Minden.

Severe storms may persist

At least 60 tornadoes and violent hurricanes were reported in five states on Friday, CNN reported. According to the weather service, the severe storms could last until Sunday.

Severe weather warnings were in effect for more than 50 million residents. In addition to storms and heavy rain, hail is also expected in some places. Experts attribute the increase in natural disasters in the USA – storms, floods and forest fires – to the consequences of climate change.
