Dire warning issued as ‘catastrophic tornadoes’ target Oklahoma, Texas

Severe weather outbreak could affect millions this weekend across the central US

Tornadoes touched down in several states over the weekend.

School districts in Oklahoma City, nearby Norman and elsewhere have canceled classes Monday as forecasts also call for hail and wind gusts of up to 80 miles per hour.

The highest possible weather warnings issued on Monday come on the sixth anniversary of a tornado in Moore, south of Oklahoma City, that killed 24 people. Furthermore, negative winds, very big hail and sturdy tornadoes will most definitely be doable at some level of parts of the Southern Plains from Midland, Texas, to Wichita, Kansas.

After a brief break, the risk of severe thunderstorms will increase again, the National Weather Service's Fort Worth office said.

In addition to the severe weather threat, torrential rain will likely cause flash flooding, especially in parts of this region already saturated from storm activity the last few months.

In Oklahoma City, thunderstorms prevented workers from securing and removing glass from Devon Tower, which was damaged Wednesday when a scaffolding holding two window washers banged against the building, The Oklahoman reported.

Opening a new front in the trade wars against European Union and Japan likely would have anxious investors even more. Steel and Nucor, which had advocated for maintaining strong tariff protections, could not be reached for comment.

The area that is at the highest risk to see severe thunderstorms will extend from western Texas to southwestern Kansas eastward through Kansas, into eastern Oklahoma and north-central Texas, according to AccuWeather meteorologists. The threats include damaging winds, tornadoes and large hail that could exceed the size of a tennis ball or baseball. A spokeswoman for the city said no deaths or serious injuries were reported.

"Tornadoes could occur well after dark, making this situation potentially even more deadly", Hennen said. That line of storms is expected to move east of Dallas by mid morning Tuesday.

'Today is not a day to mess around, ' said Marsh, who brought his own family to work with him at the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, because it has a shelter.

In early May, the MS broke its July 9, 1993 record, after heavy rainfall triggered flooding from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico, CNN affiliate WQAD reported.

In the past three days, 52 tornadoes were reported across seven states, CNN Meteorologist Michael Guy said.
