Fox News alert.
-- -- following a second round of twisters that could be threatening people who live in the middle west today.
Check out this massive funnel cloud in Shawnee Oklahoma late yesterday.
This before -- neighborhood was completely wiped out.
That is where Casey Stegall is on the ground this morning Casey good morning.
The morning to you Steve good morning the rest of you yeah absolutely terrifying afternoon and evening here in Oklahoma really had a couple of different.
Cells that were -- these tornadoes and talk the National Weather Service out of Norman.
Oklahoma this morning and basically what happened -- you had cells developing north.
East of Oklahoma City and then south east of Oklahoma City and these -- east word.
And they spun at least four different tornadoes Shawnee Oklahoma we are now about thirty miles south east of Oklahoma City.
One of the areas hardest hit and we're one of the fatalities the only fatality at this point that's being reported let me kind of set the scene back here behind you.
You can see that there is a trailer home just back there.
That is still standing all of the citing everything ripped right off of it but what you're seeing littered on the ground here is what's left of a sector mobile home.
That was just right next door but it was about thirty feet back.
And in fact this same area -- through a tornado in 2010.
And the homeowners back there who are now filtering through what is left of their home.
Tell me that when that tornado came through they wanted to anchor it down into concrete.
That is what they did with hopes that it would survive another tornado clearly it did not because it has been blown apart and there's nothing left.
Very dramatic pictures coming in from the Storm Chasers that that capture these funnel clouds coming down out of the sky yesterday.
Throughout all of this state.
Are also of course we know tornadoes up in a Kansas and in Iowa but it seems as if Oklahoma took the brunt of the damage.
There are hundreds of homes that are damaged absolutely.
Terrifying and heart breaking listen to this one woman.
The wind blew the -- And then all of a sudden.
Acting like it just went features everything.
-- think -- was sitting out there my daughter's car.
And how do you even begin to console someone like you know we're standing here and we're watching these people.
What was once their whole.
And you know this is a story that is playing out all over the place all over this region.
And and as you were saying adding insult to injury.
Another round of severe storms headed this way later today in fact almost the exact same area here in Oklahoma along the exact same timeline.
As yesterday -- something that we're really gonna be keeping our eyes on but.
These folks are trying to recover and with more storms on the way this -- what -- -- do Steve case here real quick question for you in that.
Part of the country a lot of people don't have basements so when a tornado comes where they go.
Well you go into an interior hallway into a bathroom where we typically tell people to go -- when a storm is headed their way.
You know a lot of the people here in Oklahoma do you have storm shelters.
They have built if they don't in fact have a basement they may even have a storm shelter and I saw local news report last night that the mobile home park right around the corner from where we are -- that fatality was reported.
That the mobile home park itself had a storm shelter and people hunkered down there.
And that may be one of the reasons why the fatality count wasn't as high because really Steve when you look at these images.
And you see all of these tornadoes and we're talking about at least four tornadoes and pretty strong ones we'll see if they were EF three's are -- fours.
Later today once they get out here in survey the damage it's really quite miraculous that the fatality count.
Is an even higher -- hard if you stayed alive in Shawnee Oklahoma.
