This video came out of Custer City, OK, where the tornado emergency was issued on Sunday. A pretty terrifying sight with the strong winds ripping through this property, picking up tree limbs and all other sorts of debris.

Newton, KS took a direct from a severe wind storm on Sunday. Our Field Correspondent, Brett Adair, took the compilation of videos below, including some damage from town. A wind gust over 100 mph was registered along I-70 in Salina, KS with widespread wind gusts over 70 mph in the Garden State - that is the equivalent to a CAT1 hurricane.

The severe reports were abundant with most places having to deal with extreme, hurricane-force winds, and giant hail. The red dots indicate where tornado reports came from. A few landspouts were spotted in eastern Colorado but didn't cause any damage.
