Tornados continue to ravage the country as an Oklahoma storm killed eight people on Tuesday.

Another round of severe weather and tornados in the midwest has claimed at least 13 more lives in three states.

This as residents of Joplin, Missouri pick up the pieces after the deadliest tornado in six decades.

One-hundred-twenty-five people are now confirmed dead in Joplin.

Multiple funnels dropped from the sky in Oklahoma, tearing away everything in their path.

Eight people were killed as the storms moved across the Oklahoma plains, searing mostly farmland and rural communities.

The twister surprised these drivers as it crossed Interstate 40, and the devastation continued as the system pushed to the east.

Tornados are being blamed for three deaths in Arkansas and two more in Kansas.

Next, the storms took aim on Joplin, Missouri.

It was a tension filled night of tornado warnings and watches, but no confirmed touch down, giving way to another morning of dealing with the struggle to survive in the battered community.
