See the stunning videos: Tornadoes rip through central US as storm chasers capture their power

A string of tornadoes have ripped through the central United States in recent days, and stunning videos captured by storm chasers and everyday people show their power and havoc.

A tornado tore through a neighborhood near Tulsa International Airport on Tuesday, and 19 rolled across several states Monday.

Strong winds, downpours and hail also threatened parts of Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas and Illinois, forecasters say.

At least one person was injured and dozens of homes were damaged near the Tulsa airport Tuesday. The tornadoes Monday damaged homes and buildings as well.

At least 50 reports of tornadoes were logged across the central and southern Plains last week, AccuWeather said.
