Tornadoes and severe storms came ripping through Oklahoma and Kansas Sunday, Feb. 27, 2022, leaving a dozen injured and thousands without power. 

Wind gusts got up to 70 to 100 miles per hour in southwest Oklahoma as tornado sightings were reported throughout the state, including Oklahoma City. These storms and powerful wind gusts have extended into Kansas, Texas and Missouri. Tornado warnings were issued in Oklahoma counties and stayed in effect until Monday morning. 

 “The same storm system that brought snow to Southern California and tornadoes to Oklahoma is now set to bring snow and ice from Wisconsin to Maine and severe weather from Illinois to Ohio,” said CBS weather producer David Parkinson.
