(Reuters) - A series of tornadoes touched down southwest of Oklahoma City on Wednesday, causing damage to some structures, but there were no immediate reports of injuries, officials and local TV reports said.

Forecasters said the storm system was moving toward the Oklahoma City area and could produce much larger tornadoes.

Broadcaster KFOR showed video footage of about a half dozen tornadoes briefly touching down, one of which destroyed a mobile home near Chickasha, about 40 miles southwest of Oklahoma City.
