A series of tornadoes tore through Oklahoma Wednesday destroying homes, businesses and infrastructure.

This area southwest of Oklahoma City experienced extensive damage with homes reduced to timber and power lines downed.

According to the National Weather Service, tornadoes sometimes destroy particular structures but leave those next door untouched.

Local media say the tornado that hit this area was about a mile wide.

The full extent of the damages is not yet known. No injuries have been reported so far.

The storms brought heavy rain to some areas.

The roads and businesses of Moore, a suburb of Oklahoma City, were inundated with water.

The town was placed under a tornado emergency.

Moore was devastated by a tornado about two years ago that killed 24 people and injured more than 300.

The National Weather Service said there have been about two dozen tornadoes reported in the area so far.

A tornado watch has been issued for an area stretching from central Texas to central Nebraska.
