OMAHA, June 3 (UPI) -- Residents from South Dakota through Illinois are bracing for 80 mph winds, large hail and potentially deadly tornadoes starting as soon as Tuesday afternoon.

The affected states include South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, Missouri and Illinois. Large chunks of hail and winds between 60-80 mph are expected throughout all affected areas, with a strong possibility of developing tornadoes pushing winds over 130 mph.

CBS Chicago's Megan Glaros warned in a tweet that this is not a typical spring storm system, but something much worse.


Among major-population centers, Omaha, Neb. and nearby Des Moines, Iowa are the most threatened by the land hurricane, as both are located in the heart of the storm's path.
