Midwest Plagued by Tornados, Floods, Blizzards

Ad Feedback

People across the country endured extreme weather conditions this weekend.

Tropical Storm Karen started the weekend in the Gulf, but then fizzled out. That was a relief to stormy-weary residents, who prepared for the worst.

But it was a different story for people in Wayne, Neb., who saw an EF-4 tornado rip through homes, businesses, and an airport.

"You never think it's going to be you and it was us this time," one Nebraska resident told ABC News.

In South Dakota, residents saw a record-breaking blizzard. The early storm dumped as much as four feet of snow.

"I wish it would have waited a little longer," South Dakota resident Jaime Hockett told reporters. "A little too early for me to have this bout of winter."

People in Kentucky saw extreme flooding. And in California, massive brush fires came dangerously close to Los Angeles freeways and forced evacuations at Camp Pendleton.
