The disaster was so great that hundreds of homes were destroyed overnight, and many local residents are seriously injured.

Echoes of a tornado can be seen in the towns nearby.
— From high winds, hail and rain went home shaking, — said Karen Uilogbay serving of a cafe near the small town of Mapleton.
