Union City, Oklahoma (CNN) -- The full scale of the destruction wrought by five new tornadoes that plowed through the Oklahoma City area became apparent in the light of day Saturday.

Friday evening's twisters killed at least five people, less than two weeks after a monstrous tornado made rubble of the town of Moore, a suburb of Oklahoma City.

In all, 17 tornadoes were reported in the Midwest. The number was expected to change when officials conduct storm surveys, said Kurt Van Speybroeck, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

And while the twisters damaged houses in Missouri and Illinois, the brunt of its force was reserved for Oklahoma City and its surrounding areas, including El Reno and Union City.


Just an incredible amount of tornado's this year. And it's June 1st so you know what THAT means...
