EDMOND, Okla. (AP) — One of several tornadoes spawned by a powerful storm system rumbling through the Plains and Midwest has leveled several mobile homes in an area southeast of Oklahoma City.

Reports of injuries in the mobile home park near Shawnee about 35 miles southeast of Oklahoma City couldn’t immediately be confirmed.

A storm spotter has told the National Weather Service that the tornado “scoured” the landscape in the park and an area along Interstate 40.

The highway has been closed because of overturned tractor-trailers that now litter the road. Television footage showed the twister approaching an area near the Shawnee Reservoir.
