Tornadoes tore through Oklahoma and Kansas Saturday, destroying buildings and toppling part of a train.
Reports of damage began coming in late Saturday afternoon from Olpe, Kansas, about halfway between Wichita and Kansas City. Photos posted by the Lyon County Sheriff's Department showed multiple buildings had been blown over.
According to NBC News, a total of at least 19 tornadoes touched down Saturday across the Great Plains and Midwest.
Despite the damage, a sheriff's dispatcher in Lyon County, Kansas, told BuzzFeed News that no one was injured or killed in the storms.
Other affected areas also did not see injuries or fatalities, NBC News reported.
The sheriff's department also tweeted that 34 freight cars were blown over in the storm. Authorities could not initially approach the cars due to the potential of hazardous materials.
Tornadoes later damaged buildings in Elmer, about 150 miles southwest of Oklahoma City.
Much of the region saw tornado warnings Saturday, and images showed streets flooded by heavy rainfall.
According to KWCH, the storms damaged roads and dumped 3.5 inches of rain on Wichita.
Video also showed what appeared to be a tornado in Minnesota.
