(Newser) – A powerful storm system produced a deadly tornado in southeastern Oklahoma yesterday, killing at least two. Dozens more were injured in Tushka, Okla., as the tornado tore up roofs, shattered windows, and tossed power lines and trees. The town's school was essentially destroyed: The roof is gone, the top story of one of its buildings was torn off, and textbooks are scattered everywhere. The storm then moved into western Arkansas—where a 24-year-old man and an 18-month-old girl were reportedly killed early today when a tree fell on a mobile home—before continuing into Tennessee, Louisiana, and Mississippi, reports the AP.
