(Fox News) – A spate of at least 10 tornadoes caused destruction across the Southern Plains on Saturday that left a few people injured and the region with little time to clean up the damage before an even bigger severe threat looms at the start of the week. The National Weather Service said an EF2 tornado, with winds up to 130 mph, destroyed two homes east of Geronimo, Okla. on Saturday and left one person with minor injuries. The NWS said the path of the twister was “very short,”

but had strong winds. Families said they were awakened around 7:45 a.m. and had little time to react as the storm bore down. “Suddenly, the roof went ‘foom’ and that was it, and it was gone. Everything was gone,” Waldon Simmons told FOX 25. In northwestern Arkansas, a suspected tornado damaged about 40 homes in the Fort Smith area, 40/29 News reported. Energy companies in Oklahoma and Arkansas reported tens of thousands of customers were without power as of Sunday. READ MORE
