Severe weather hit the Midwest this afternoon. Tornado watches stretched from Ohio to Arkansas and severe thunderstorm watches included Arkansas, Texas and Louisiana.

Tornado-warned storms caused hail, wind, and frequent lightning along a cold front as it pushed though the Mississippi and Ohio River valleys. Video shows the extreme weather as a tornado warned storm moves through Ohio. At least one tornado was reported near Charleston, Ohio.

In Texas, ping pong and golf ball size hail fell in the central and eastern parts of the state. Wind damage was reported from Ohio to Texas.
