The National Weather Service has confirmed 59 tornadoes from a weekend outbreak of storms that killed six people.
"The Storm Prediction Center estimates the total will be around 75 when all surveys are complete," the weather service website said.
There were initial reports of 135 tornadoes - spread across Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Oklahoma - from the sprawling storm system that ripped across the Plains and Midwest on Saturday. A much smaller outbreak was reported Sunday.
At the time, the weather service said a final confirmed count would only come after officials had a chance to fan out across the states and determine how many of the reports were indeed tornadoes.FULL STORY
