Nearly the same setup for tornadoes that focused on Oklahoma Monday is targeting north central Texas Tuesday afternoon.
Severe storms, some capable of producing tornadoes, will threaten communities across northeastern Texas, northwestern Louisiana and Arkansas into Tuesday night.
The same storm system responsible for producing violent thunderstorms in Oklahoma recently will reach the Atlantic Seaboard Thursday.
While additional strong thunderstorms will roll through through portions of tornado-ravaged Oklahoma Tuesday, the risk of tornadoes has diminished.
The atmospheric severe weather engine began firing on all cylinders this past weekend and reached full speed Monday over Oklahoma.
Preliminary reports are calling it an EF-4 tornado that has caused numerous fatalities and injuries in Moore, Okla.
