    ...SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED OVER PARTS OF THE CENTRAL AND
    SOUTHERN PLAINS THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT...

    THE NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER IN NORMAN OK IS FORECASTING THE
    DEVELOPMENT OF A FEW STRONG...POTENTIALLY LONG-TRACK

    ELSEWHERE...SEVERE STORMS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE FROM SOUTHERN NEBRASKA

    ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS ARE IN THE PROCESS OF BECOMING VERY UNSTABLE
    NEAR AN AREA OF DEVELOPING LOW PRESSURE ACROSS THE SOUTH CENTRAL

    STRONG TORNADOES...DAMAGING WIND GUSTS AND VERY LARGE HAIL...AIDED
    BY STRENGTHENING WIND FIELDS AND SHEAR.

    5 dead as tornadoes rip through Southern Plains

    NORMAN, Okla. – Tornadoes ripped through parts of the Southern Plains on Monday in an outbreak of violent weather that killed five people, tossed cars off highways, flipped mobile homes and sent baseball-size hail crashing through windshields, officials said.

    Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management spokesman Jerry Lojka said two people were killed Oklahoma City and three were killed in Cleveland County, which is south of the city. The agency did not have any additional details, including how the people died.


    Officials reported that at least 58 others suffered injuries throughout Oklahoma in the daylong onslaught. Two of the injuries were critical. In some neighborhoods in Oklahoma City, emergency workers were going door to door to make sure everyone was accounted for.

    May the Lord be with everybody affected, in Jesus' Name, amen.
