(RNN) - After a stormy weekend, the Midwest might get hit with more severe weather on Monday.

The National Weather Service said central Kansas, southeast Nebraska and central Iowa - including Omaha, NE, and Des Moines, IA - have the highest probability of experiencing severe storms, including very large hail, damaging winds and possible tornadoes.

As of Monday morning, no deaths had been reported from the multistate outbreak over the weekend.

A large area of the nation's midsection were under a slight threat of severe weather on Monday, from north Texas up to southern Minnesota and east to Indiana. This area includes Chicago, Indianapolis and Kansas City.

Preliminary reports indicate there were 27 tornadoes in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and South Dakota on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service. This is after 14 possible tornadoes struck on Saturday in Missouri, Kansas, Idaho and Alabama.

Hail of up to a quarter in size was seen across the tornado-afflicted area on Sunday, as well as across Indiana and Illinois.

Central Iowa experienced severe storms, including wind, hail and possible tornadoes Sunday, with damage reported, WHO-HD reported via Twitter. Most of the damage occurred south of the town of Yale, IA.

At least one tornado touched down Sunday in Clay County, NE, where one person was reported injured, according to a CNN report.

Buildings in the downtown area of Sutton, NE, were badly damaged, with roofs torn off and windows smashed.

Farm structures, including grain bins and pivots, sustained damage in Nebraska, according to the National Weather Service.

About 500 cattle escaped in Sioux, IA, after a suspected tornado wrecked a dairy farm.

Damaged homes were reported in Saunders, NE, and Union, SD.

On Saturday, tornadoes severely damaged Orrick, MO, and Marshall, MO, two small towns northeast of Kansas City, according to KCTV. No serious injuries were reported.

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency for the stricken area on Sunday.

    Standing water between Dixileta Drive and Happy Valley Road forced the Arizona Department of Transportation to close northbound traffic on I-17 at Happy Valley Road.
    There was a daring rescue, one of many, in the far Northwest Valley, where an elderly woman was trapped inside her minivan as water slowly pushed her partially submerged vehicle downstream.
