At least four dead United States dozens tornadoes ravage Oklahoma Weather news ExBulletin

Multiple tornadoes in Oklahoma kill 4, injure dozens. Governor declares state of emergency. President Biden offers federal support. Extensive damage reported.

The devastating impact of multiple tornadoes in Oklahoma has left at least four people dead and dozens injured, with hospitals reporting around 100 injuries, including individuals hit by debris. The town of Sulfur, home to 5,000 residents, suffered extensive damage as buildings were leveled, vehicles were tossed into the air, and roofs were ripped off homes.

Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt expressed disbelief at the destruction during a visit to the hard-hit city, noting that all businesses in the city center appeared to be destroyed. Tragically, a four-month-old baby was among the fatalities, according to Hughes County Emergency Management Director Mike Dockrey.

Approximately 30 people were injured, with some caught in a bar when the tornado struck. More than 20,000 residents were left without power as of Sunday evening, prompting Governor Stitt to declare a state of emergency in 12 counties. President Joe Biden offered full federal support in the recovery efforts during a call with the governor.

The National Weather Service reported 38 possible tornadoes in the area, with the worst of the storms crossing central Oklahoma and spreading to northwest Texas, western Missouri, and Kansas. The impact of these natural disasters serves as a stark reminder of the importance of emergency preparedness and the resilience of communities in the face of adversity.
