A brief gathering tornado or tropical cyclone outbreak in Texas and Oklahoma is sowing chaos across Texas and Oklahoma, wrecking most of the residential places and shutting down highways and airports.

The US National Weather Service (NWS) warned on Monday evening that this brutal storm system over the two southern states had already spawned several tornadoes and had the potential to create more.

The twisters have already touched down in the Texan towns of Jacksboro, Luling, and Round Rock, as well as Kingston in Oklahoma, damaging multiple homes and buildings, including a school and an animal shelter.

There are about 350 flights at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, roughly one-fifth of all flights both inbound and outbound, were reportedly cancelled on Monday, while state officials in Texas closed multiple highways due to debris. The videos shot by citizens, news reporters, and storm chasers showed tornadoes touching down throughout Texas and leaving a trail of destruction through car parks, fields, mobile homes, and houses.

The NWS on Monday evening says that several tornadoes, including the potential for a few strong tornadoes, along with very large hail and damaging winds, are expected this evening through tonight, especially across parts of central and east Texas into western Louisiana. It said the tornado risk would continue until at least Wednesday, with the area of storm danger moving up the Gulf of Mexico coast through Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and South and North Carolina.

One tornado moved into the town of Madisonville, Texas, around 9.40pm Texas time, felling trees and causing damage, according to storm chasers live streaming to YouTube.
