Southern Plains facing severe weather; school districts cancel classes.

The Associated Press - May 20, 2019 11:00 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Another round of severe weather is forecast for the Southern Plains, including the possibility of tornadoes.

School districts in Oklahoma City, nearby Norman, Moore, Mid-Del, Mustang, Yukon, Deer Creek, Kingfisher,  Tulsa, and elsewhere have canceled classes Monday as forecasts also call for hail and wind gusts of up to 80 mph.

A flood watch is in effect for the greater Oklahoma City region. Strong winds and hail also are forecast for the West Texas.

The National Weather Service says the storm system will move later Monday into western Arkansas. The threat of severe weather will continue into Tuesday.

It’s the latest round of severe weather to strike the region after a spate of tornadoes raked the Southern Plains on Friday and Saturday, leaving widespread damage and some people injured.
