Second day of storms pound several central US states

Posted:

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A second day of powerful storms has roared through middle America, with tornadoes touching down in Kentucky and southern Indiana.

The National Weather Service issued tornado watches and a series of warnings in a dozen states on Wednesday that stretched northwest from Texas though the Mississippi River valley to Ohio.

There were no immediate reports of any serious injuries or deaths.

The storms follow a deadly outbreak Tuesday in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Kansas that killed at least 15 people.  The nation's single deadliest tornado since 1950 killed 125 people on Sunday in the southwest Missouri city of Joplin.
