Tornado confirmed in Richland County, Shelby deals with damage from storm

At least 30 people were reportedly injured and killed, including some soldiers, who were hit with flying debris.

Almost 2,300 US flights were canceled by Sunday evening, more then 90 percent of them at airports in Chicago; Houston, Texas; Charlotte, North Carolina; Pittsburgh; Columbus, Ohio and a dozen major airports on the Eastern Seaboard, according to FlightAware.com.

The Times Gazette reported several homes and businesses were damaged after an apparent tornado struck Shelby, Ohio, Sunday about 4 p.m.

News 5 viewers captured videos and images of funnel clouds, tornadoes forming, shelf clouds and the destruction these storms brought to the area. No injuries were reported there, but officials said several businesses and vehicles were damaged.

As the storms tore through MS overnight into Sunday, they left a trail of destruction that authorities are still combing through.

As the storm moved east, one person was killed by a tornado in the northern MS, according to Monroe County Coroner Alan Gurley.

But the majority of damaged remained in the Southern part of the U.S. Mobile homes will be damaged or destroyed.

The same system caused damage in Columbus, Mississippi.

Trees were pulled from the ground by their roots and the tornado caused structural damage to buildings including tearing off roofs.

They were in the back seat with their parents in the front, Angelina County Sheriff's Department Capt. Alton Lenderman said. "The tree fell just as they were going under it".

The storm is expected to continue moving toward the Northeast where its impact has already been devastating.

"The survey is in relation to the severe thunderstorms that moved through the area on April 15th", the weather service said.

The weather service also says preliminary information showed an EF-3 tornado with winds of 140 mph touched down in Franklin, located about 125 miles (200 kilometers) south of Dallas.
