The weather service reported 33 tornadoes or severe storms nationwide.

In Selma, most roads were closed because of broken power lines and trees, as the city announced on Facebook. Rescue teams are on duty to provide assistance and clear the streets. Citizens were asked not to go outside. Children should not leave schools. The weather service had warned of a “large and extremely dangerous tornado” in the area.
