Tornadoes touched down in Kansas and Oklahoma on Sunday evening from a massive storm system stretching from Texas to Minnesota.

Several homes were heavily damaged near the Oklahoma towns of Carney and Wellston, where tornadoes reportedly ripped off roofs and walls in the rural center of the state, according to local media footage.

Earlier Sunday, a tornado touched down southwest of Wichita in southern Kansas. That storm system knocked out power lines, dumped golf-ball-sized hail and caused some flash flooding.

Despite multiple twisters that scoured both states, there was no immediate report of injuries.

Here's a sampling of tweets as residents and forecasters buckled down for the storms:

As the storm system crossed through Oklahoma, communities in the central part of the state and meteorologists found themselves gazing at the same storm they were watching on their monitors.
