1 killed when tornado hits Oklahoma town

An emergency manager says a man was killed when a large tornado tore through a home at Wynnewood, Oklahoma.

The twister was among a number of violent storms that raked the Plains on Monday. The Storm Prediction Center said portions of the Plains and the Ozarks faced a "substantial tornado risk" into Monday night.
The emergency director in Garvin County, Oklahoma, Bud Ramming, said a man believed to be in his late 70s was found dead in a home. The twister prompted forecasters to issue a "tornado emergency" for communities east of Wynnewood, noting the storm could be particularly violent.
Officials in other communities said a number of homes were damaged by tornadoes.
