One person is reported dead and several others injured after tornadoes tore through the US state of Oklahoma.

The powerful storm system left a trail of destruction in its wake – uprooting trees and damaging homes and other buildings.

A mobile home park was said to have been flattened.

Tornadoes also struck other states, including Kansas, as the extreme weather moved through the central US – stretching from north Texas to Minnesota.

Thousands were reportedly left without power.

As well as strong winds, hail stones the size of baseballs were also forecast.
