Five people are thought have died in Oklahoma in America after several tornadoes hit the Southern Plains region.

Hundreds of homes and businesses were destroyed.

Some highways had to be shut down because of wrecked cars and trucks.

And the 100mph winds forced the Oklahoma airport to shut after it damaged a load of planes.
