Omaha and Nebraska were hit by baseball-sized hail that caused thousands of dollars worth of damage. Forecasters are calling it a life-threatening situation.

Livestock were also killed by the powerful twisters, while highways remain closed after severe damage left by the 217km/h tornados, a speed estimate from America’s National Weather Service.

Tornado season is well underway in Oklahoma and will roughly last until the end of August.
