A series of tornadoes swept across Indiana and Ohio overnight, packed so tightly that one may have crossed the path carved by another, AP reports, as severe weather continues to hammer the Central U.S.

Details: A "large and dangerous" tornado struck the Dayton, Ohio, suburb of Trotwood just after 11pm Monday. At least one person was killed by the tornadoes in Celina, about 60 miles north of Dayton. The National Weather Service said it was notified about multiple tornadoes, with reports of injuries and widespread damage. Power outages affected 5 million people in Ohio, it said, in part due to widespread straight-line winds that downed trees and power lines. Flash flood warnings were also in place.

The National Weather Service has found the tornado that struck near Dayton in Greene County, Ohio, had an intensity of at least EF-3 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale.

The big picture: The Central U.S. has been battered by severe storms and flooding this spring, which have seen communities along the Mississippi and Arkansas rivers faced with the threat of historic flash and river flooding.

Data: The Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins, the CDC, and China's Health Ministry. Note: China numbers are for the mainland only and U.S. numbers include repatriated citizens.

The novel coronavirus has spread to more nations, and the U.S. reports a doubling of its confirmed cases to 34 — while noting these are mostly due to repatriated citizens, emphasizing there's no "community spread" yet in the United States.

The big picture: COVID-19 has now killed at least 2,362 people and infected more than 77,000 others, mostly in mainland China. New countries to announce infections recently include Israel and Lebanon, while Iran reported its sixth death from the virus. South Korea's confirmed cases jumped from 204 Friday to 433 on Saturday and Italy's case count rose from 3 to 62 by Saturday.

American farmers are struggling to safely use the roads that cut through their fields; decades of neglect and lack of funding have made the routes dangerous.

The big picture: President Trump has long promised to invest billions in rural infrastructure, and his latest proposal would allocate $1 trillion for such projects. Rural America, where many of Trump's supporters live, would see a large chunk of that money.
