(SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) DENA DUFFIN WHO LOST HOME SAYING: "Here's our living room and what's left of it." About 20 tornadoes were reported by storm chasers across Kansas, coming just a day after twisters pulverized buildings in western Ohio, killing one person and injuring scores.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) SUE TAULBEE, 71, OF BROOKVILLE, OHIO, SAYING: "I was screaming 'Lord help me, Lord help me.'' Sue Taulbee says she was watching TV when she heard the tornado outside her Ohio home.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) SUE TAULBEE, 71, OF BROOKVILLE, OHIO, SAYING: "I got up, slipped on my slippers, grabbed my glasses, went around the bed and was sitting in front of the bed.

By that time, that's when the wall fell.

And I was on the ground.

But I was trapped." She survived the ordeal, though her home did not.

More than 300 tornadoes have ravaged the Midwest in the last two weeks.

Meanwhile in Arkansas, some homes are up to the roof with water… And according to the National Weather Service, after more than a week of violent downpours and deadly tornadoes, more rain is forecast in Arkansas and neighboring Oklahoma..
