Severe storms move out of Texas, into Oklahoma and Arkansas

Severe storms move out of Texas, into Oklahoma and Arkansas
TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Forecasters say a band of thunderstorms packing dangerous lightning, large hail, and damaging winds are moving out of Texas and into Oklahoma and Arkansas.
The National Weather Service says the potentially severe storms are expected to travel Saturday through far eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas. Flash flood warnings were posted in several counties, some already waterlogged from spring storms that moved through the same area in the past few days.
The weather service said some thunderstorms could turn severe by the end of the weekend, with large hail and damaging winds being the main threats.
Several Plains states have already been battered this week with severe storms, tornadoes and damaging winds.
Oklahoma emergency managers said Saturday that the past week of storms killed one person and injured 75 more.
