Massive storms killed at least 13 people in the U.S. states of Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas on Tuesday evening, authorities said Wednesday. 

Dozens of homes and several businesses were destroyed and nearly 58,000 residences lost power, according to CNN. 

The storms, which came right behind the destructive twister that struck Joplin, Missouri Sunday and killed at least 122 people, moved into the Oklahoma City area Tuesday evening. 

The Joplin tornado is the worst single tornado in the United States since modern record-keeping began more than 60 years ago. A CNN report said 1,500 people are still unaccounted for on Wednesday.
