Severe storms rolled across northern Oklahoma Wednesday night, producing multiple tornadoes near Goltry, Hillsdale, Carrier, Kremlin. 

One person was injured when a tree fell on their SUV in Garfield County. Their condition isn't known.

About five miles west of Carrier, strong winds from the tornado likely caused a train derailment. A total of 19 empty grain cars were lifted off of the tracks.
We're told the train was stationary and no one was hurt.

Crews are assessing the damage Thursday morning and are working to get the train back on the tracks.

Further north in Kansas, about 20 homes were damaged by another tornado near the small town of Chapman. Troopers say there are some reports of minor injuries.
