VIDEO: Dozens of tornadoes strike the Plains, videos and photos shared of violent twisters

WashingtonPost:

Severe storms have plagued parts of the Plains since Friday, including about 50 reported tornadoes, and more severe weather is on the way. A dangerous severe weather outbreak is possible Monday, which would target parts of Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas. Massive hail, destructive winds, and potentially strong tornadoes could be in the offing.

The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has already raised the severe weather threat to its second-highest level (4 out of 5) on Monday. That’s a surefire sign confidence is high for a potentially significant event. Since 2003, only 18 events have prompted SPC to raise a red flag that early.

The article goes on to state the following:

The potential outbreak stems from the overlap of plentiful instability and loads of wind shear — a change of wind speed or direction with height. Roaring jet stream winds of more than 120 mph, just 17,000 feet above the ground, will only make the storms stronger, setting them rotating like a spinning top.

Below are just some of the incredible videos and photos posted on Twitter, of the violent tornadoes which struck across the country Friday and Saturday:
