Midwest tornadoes went on a rare November rampage, with Iowa and Nebraska reporting more than a half-dozen twisters. 

"It is unusual to have tornadoes in this month, but certainly in the state of Iowa we can see them any month of the year," Craig Cogil, meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Iowa, told the Des Moines Register. "You have to be ready regardless."

The last time Iowa was hit with multiple tornadoes this late was Nov. 11, 2015, when 19 touched down.

The Omaha World-Herald reported a tornado struck south-central Nebraska on Sunday, causing "modest damage" in the Red Cloud area near Lawrence. Power lines were downed and an outbuilding was flipped.

Storm spotter Ryan Meyer posted a photo of the tornado on social media.

 

 

The Weather Channel said more damage was done as storms traveled west, slamming Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Mississippi.

More than 23,000 homes and businesses lost power in Mississippi Monday evening.

"A strong jet stream in combination with Gulf of Mexico moisture are the ingredients for severe weather in the Deep South this evening," said Weather.com meteorologist Brian Donegan. "A few tornadoes are possible, along with damaging wind gusts up to 70 mph and isolated large hail up to one inch."
