Over 45 tornadoes touched down between Saturday and Sunday. Some portions of Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, and Kansas had over 80 mph wind gusts and some places dealt with hail near softball-sized at 4" in diameter!

More and more sights of damage are coming to light out of much of the Central U.S. This was tornado damage early Sunday morning in Kentucky of complete devastation.

Here's a video of a strong tornado that touched down in Dawson Springs, KY from our field correspondent, Brandon Clement. The NWS in Paducah has preliminarily rated this as a high-end EF-3 but they're waiting on structural engineers to help them continue the survey.
