At least 120 reports of tornadoes were received before dawn on Sunday by storm trackers as an unusually ferocious weather front caused damage in several Midwestern states, killing five.

The people who died, including three children, were in Woodward, a town about 140 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. More than two dozen people were injured in the town, but it was the only tornado that caused fatalities.

Many of the touchdowns raked harmlessly across isolated stretches of rural Kansas, and though communities there and in Iowa were hit, residents and officials credited days of urgent warnings from forecasters for saving lives.– AP
