Tornado Recovery and Flooding Fears: Updates on Missouri and Oklahoma Storms

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. Much of the central United States braced Friday for another day of nasty storms, raging floodwaters and the potential for powerful tornadoes as residents across the region nervously watched river levels rise.

The severe weather will race from Texas to the Great Lakes region on Friday, bringing with it fierce winds, hail and potentially more tornadoes in a region that has found itself fighting multiple crises through a waterlogged, miserable spring. Three people died in Golden City, Mo., when a tornado roared through the rural town on Wednesday. Overall, seven people have died in the storms this week.

Jefferson City, Mo., which was hit by a separate tornado on Wednesday, is now under threat of widespread flooding from the Missouri River. The river is expected to crest early Saturday morning at more than 32 feet 11 feet higher than flood level, according to the National Weather Service.

And in Tulsa, Okla., the Army Corps of Engineers continued to release water at a dam northwest of the city to help drain the Arkansas River watershed, which has been deluged by the series of pounding storms in recent months.
