At least seven people were dead in a US midwest tornado, which left over 10 kilometers of destruction in northwestern Ohio. More than 50 houses were destructed. A dozen people got injured and hospitalized following the twister.

The tornado was an F2, which came with heavy storm winds between 113 and 157 mph, according to reports OneIndia News.

A community whose high school was destroyed the day before graduation by a tornado that killed seven people, including the valedictorian's father, rescheduled the ceremony as residents sifted through houses in many cases reduced to rubble.

The tornado was part of a line of storms that ripped through the Midwest on Saturday night and Sunday, destroying dozens of homes and an emergency services building in northwest Ohio.

Storms collapsed a movie-theater roof in Illinois and ripped siding off a building at a Michigan nuclear plant, forcing a shutdown. But the worst destruction was reserved for a 100-yard-wide, 7-mile-long strip southeast of Toledo left littered Sunday with wrecked vehicles, splintered wood and family possessions, The Associated Press reports.
