DALLAS (AP) — Tornadoes have destroyed homes in Arkansas and Missouri, as well as caused damage in Oklahoma amid severe storms. The storms also unleashed downpours that caused widespread flash flooding.

Dallas police say one person died Friday night when a car flipped into a creek west of downtown Dallas. Earlier in the afternoon, a tornado destroyed two homes near Fair Play, Missouri.

Tornado watches Friday night covered parts of eastern Texas, northwestern Louisiana, southern Missouri, and much of Arkansas. Forecasters say that wicked weather also will pose a threat to Alabama and Georgia as the system moves eastward on Saturday.
