    Americans throughout the country continue to stay alert after last week storms killed at least 32 people in New England, with around 15 million people along the East Coast in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania put under tornado watches.

    A powerful tornado tore through Marshall County in southern Oklahoma, while another storm hit Onalaska in southeast Texas on Wednesday, killing at least five people. According to Marshall County Emergency Management Director Robert Chaney, a dead body was found outside a trailer factory about six miles southwest of Madill.

    The Polk County Office of Emergency Management, in turn, stated that three people had died and at least 20 were injured in Onalaska due to the disaster.

    ​The winds damaged several residential areas, reportedly causing almost golf ball-sized hail.
