PDS Tornado Watch # 199 is coming for Oklahoma. This is only the second watch in SPC history where every category of watch probabilities (torn, wind, hail) are at greater than 95%.

The only other watch like this was issued for Alabama on 27 April 2011.

Some pretty strong wording from SPC on how storm delay is only making things worse from a TORNADO OUTBREAK standpoint as atmospherics align themselves for better chance at long track tornadoes and intensity and how they will develop and advance from Southwest OK this afternoon.

21 tornadoes ripped through 4 states, now millions are under flooding threat
By Jason Hanna, Christina Maxouris and Dave Hennen, CNN
Updated 1346 GMT (2146 HKT) May 21, 2019

(CNN)Severe thunderstorms are raking and flooding parts of the central US on Tuesday, including in Oklahoma, where a tornado appeared to touch down near the Tulsa International Airport in the early morning.

At least 21 tornadoes were reported in parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas from early Monday to Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service said -- and more are possible, especially in parts of Missouri and Arkansas.

No severe damage was immediately reported near the Tulsa airport, where a tornado was reported shortly after 6:30 a.m. CT Tuesday. But radar indicated that a tornado was sending debris into the air, CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said.

"That debris was ... very close and moving toward" the airport, Myers said.

Severe weather is possible Tuesday in the central Plains, Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, and parts of Texas and Louisiana.
Damaging winds and hail appear to be the main threats, but more tornadoes are possible, especially in southern Missouri and northern Arkansas.

We had a lot of tornado alerts on our recent trip back on the train from New Mexico, but none materialized to affect us. However, we saw a LOT of flooding in Kansas, Iowa, and Illinois. The Mississippi was really high even then and they've just had more rain since then. One little park along the Mississippi that we had commented on how pretty it was on our way down was totally under water on our way back. We've seen worse flooding in past years along that route, but this was pretty bad. In particular, a lot of fields were under water and weren't likely to be planted any time soon.

Storms turned deadly in Missouri. :( Parts of MO now getting flooding as storm continues.

"Violent tornado" pounds Jefferson City, Missouri, causing extensive damage - live updates

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/jefferson- ... d=67948403
What the National Weather Service calls a "violent tornado" hit Jefferson City, Missouri, late Wednesday night, leaving extensive damage and downed power lines. All available first responders were being called to the city, Missouri's state capital.

Authorities said nine people were in area hospitals with storm-related injuries Wednesday morning.

Gov. Mike Parson praised first responders who worked through the night to free people from homes ripped apart in the storm.

:snippity:

Three people were killed as a suspected twister hit the Golden City area of Barton County in southwest Missouri Wednesday night. That's not far from Joplin, where a catastrophic tornado leveled much of the city and killed 161 people exactly eight years ago.

In Jefferson City, the state capital, there is extensive damage along Ellis Boulevard near Highway 54. Power lines are down. Traffic is being diverted as @MSHPTrooperGHQ & local first responders go door-to-door. Consider all power lines live.

Stay out of areas with damage. #MoWx

Adding to the #jeffersoncity worries, the Missouri River is expected to crest Friday at its highest level, there, in 24 years, which would #flood some downtown streets, among other impacts.

Mississippi Floodway May Be Opened for Third Time in History

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles ... in-history
A major barrier that keeps the Mississippi River in its current path may be opened for just the third time in its history, potentially flooding a large part of rural Louisiana.

Concern is growing that heavy rains will cause the Mississippi to flood over the top of the Morganza Floodway -- a long dam-like structure that is designed to divert 600,000 cubic feet per second of water to take pressure off the river. To prevent that, the Army Corps of Engineers may be forced to open the gates of the barrier.

The river has been high or flooding since last October, engorged by huge rainfalls that have slowed crop planting in the Great Plains and the upper Midwest. The Mississippi between New Orleans and Baton Rouge is lined with energy infrastructure including refineries, and the swell has caused shipping delays in the waterway, a main route for grain, chemicals, coal and oil.

There’s a risk that the river will flood over the Morganza by about June 5, which would render it useless, said Ricky Boyett, a spokesman for the Army Corps of Engineers. To avoid that, its 125 gates will have to start opening by June 2 at the latest, he said.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morganza_Spillway
The Morganza Spillway or Morganza Control Structure is a flood-control structure in the U.S. state of Louisiana along the western bank of the Lower Mississippi River at river mile 280, near Morganza in Pointe Coupee Parish. The spillway stands between the Mississippi and the Morganza Floodway, which leads to the Atchafalaya Basin and the Atchafalaya River in south-central Louisiana. Its purpose is to divert water from the Mississippi River during major flood events by flooding the Atchafalaya Basin, including the Atchafalaya River and the Atchafalaya Swamp. The spillway and adjacent levees also help prevent the Mississippi from changing its present course through the major port cities of Baton Rouge and New Orleans to a new course down the Atchafalaya River to the Gulf of Mexico. The Morganza Spillway, operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, was opened during the 1973 and 2011 Mississippi River floods

The Atchafalaya River is already at flood stage south of the Atchafalaya National Wildlife Refuge down to Morgan City.
