Tornadoes touch down in Texas and Oklahoma

Tornado watch issued for western central Oklahoma

Tornado watch issued for western central Oklahoma

In Payne County, home to 82,000 people, emergency responders have conducted more than 30 water rescues, the board of commissioners said in a news release.

The weekend storms brought tornadoes and unprecedented flooding across the central USA in the region known as "Tornado alley". Many streets were impassable. Damage was reported in many areas Monday night, including the town of Mangum, but no deaths have been reported.

Washington County Commissioner Mike Bouvier told reporters there are so many roads flooded his county that they don't have enough barricades or staff to block them all. The University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University also closed their campuses.

The National Weather Service office in Norman stressed that residents "not let their guard down" on Monday night because severe storms and flooding will still be a problem overnight into Tuesday morning.

Steve Loftis, Kingfisher County emergency management director, said he followed the tornado while it was rain-wrapped and moving through the southeast part of the county and into southwest Logan County.

Late Monday afternoon, CBS affiliate KWTV reported that a tornado touched down in Crescent, Oklahoma, north of Oklahoma City. Details about injuries were not immediately available. "When it hit, we could hear the wind".

"It came so fast that we really didn't hear so much", storm victim Brenda Rogers said.

He says a cap--a layer of warm air that usually helps suppress tornadoes--was not present Monday, creating flawless conditions for possible tornadoes to grow stronger.

School districts in Oklahoma City, nearby Norman and elsewhere in Oklahoma canceled classes with forecasts of hail and wind gusts of up to 80 miles per hour (128 kph).

"Wherever you are, mother nature is always there, and you just prep and you live and you do", Burress said. Other residents and agencies were taking their own precautions.

Tinker Air Force Base near Oklahoma City moved several planes to other military installations in anticipation of storm damage.

A total of three to six inches of rainfall is expected to fall on already saturated ground in parts of Oklahoma and Kansas, CNN meteorologist Dave Hennen said.

- Risky weather conditions have formed and are lingering over Texas and Oklahoma.

On Monday, several school districts in Oklahoma, including in the Oklahoma City and Tulsa regions, canceled classes.
