30 tornadoes, more flooding from storms in central U.S.

Rare high risk of severe weather for Plains states today

The NWS urged Oklahoma and Texas residents to heed the warnings regarding their immediate areas Monday morning, as an "outbreak of severe thunderstorms", tornadoes and even hail were predicted to ravage the Great Plains states.

No severe damage was immediately reported near the Tulsa airport, where a tornado was reported shortly after 6:30 a.m. CT Tuesday.

Because storms have repeatedly hit the same areas recently, a serious flooding threat has developed in the Plains and the Midwest.

However, parts of our region were in a moderate and high risk on the day of the Washington, Illinois EF-4 tornado on November 17, 2013.

Serious river flooding - including along the already swollen Mississippi River - also is expected in the central USA as another 2 to 5 inches of rain are expected to fall over the region in the next few days.

The latest update from NOAA, an outbreak of tornadoes, some potentially long-track and violent, is expected later today into this evening "over portions of northwest Texas into western and central Oklahoma".

An intense storm system moved across the Southern Plains on Monday, spawning tornadoes that caused scattered damage and a deluge of rain but not the "particularly dangerous" twisters that forecasters had feared.

Glynadee Edwards, the Greer County emergency management director, told the Associated Press that some homes in Mangum incurred roof damage and the high school's agriculture barn was destroyed, but the livestock survived.

A risky line of thunderstorms capable of producing damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes is expected to sweep across much of Arkansas and central and eastern Missouri on Tuesday afternoon and evening.

- A tornado watch for southwestern Missouri, eastern Oklahoma and western and central Arkansas is in effect until 8am CDT (2pm BST). In the north-central part of the state, local television crews captured images of two twin tornadoes in a rural region near the small town of Crescent.

The tornado hit the west side of Mangum, southwest of Oklahoma City.

Tinker Air Force Base, near Oklahoma City, evacuated some aircraft.

Shelters have opened in several counties for those having to leave their homes.

States such as Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas are still reeling from weekend tornadoes and storms. More than six inches of rain fell in El Reno, just outside Oklahoma City.

In a brief video posted on Twitter, a National Weather Service forecaster said to expect "multiple waves of severe thunderstorms", adding, "Do not let your guard down on Monday night".
