VIDEO/PHOTOS: At least nine tornadoes were reported in Kansas and Oklahoma on Sunday night as a massive winter storm moves east across the U.S. One tornado destroyed a home, toppled trees and knocked over power lines in Liberal, Kansas, near the state line with Oklahoma, according to local authorities. At least 12 people were injured due to the severe weather in Oklahoma's third-largest city, Norman, located about 20 miles south of the state's capital. None of the injuries were critical and there were no reported fatalities, according to the city. Drones are helping assess damage on Monday, Norman Police Chief Kevin Foster said. Some roads have been shut down and two Norman elementary schools are closed, Foster said. Wind gusts over 70 mph and hail measuring 1 inch in diameter were reported in Oklahoma City.
