Top Tweets: Texas, Oklahoma & Kansas tornado outbreak

Thursday, May 18, 2017, 9:57 - Thursday brought yet another round of tornadoes, hail and damaging winds to the Plains, with our Storm Hunters Mark Robinson and Ross Giarratana among the many storm chasers capturing Mother Nature at work across Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.

As of 9:00 p.m. CDT Thursday, 19 tornadoes were reported

Residents were urged not to let their guard down as scattered severe thunderstorms were expected to continue across parts of the southern and central Plains through Thursday evening/overnight. Wind damage, large hail and a few tornadoes were the main threats across eastern Kansas southward across east-central Oklahoma, with isolated severe thunderstorms possible for parts of north-central Texas Thursday evening.
