A tornado ripped through South Dakota's largest city late on Tuesday (September 11), leaving a trail of destruction in its path, as severe thunderstorms threatened several counties in the state.

Video of the aftermath showed damages at an auto parts shop past midnight on Wednesday (September 11), with debris scattered across the road and fallen trees blocking traffic in the city of Sioux Falls.

The National Weather Service confirmed a tornado touched down in Sioux Falls in a tweet posted at 11:45 pm local time (0445GMT on September 11).
