A large storm system is forecast to continue to bring severe weather to the Plains and Midwest from Saturday, May 25, through Monday, May 27. Potentially dangerous weather, including thunderstorms, strong winds, hail, flash flooding, and tornadoes, is forecast from Oklahoma to Indiana states. Wind gusts of 100 mph (60 mph) to 130 kph (80 mph) and golf ball-sized hail are possible and weather officials have warned of flash flooding partly due to heavily saturated ground from recent storms. Associated disruptions, including power outages, telecommunication disruptions, road closures, and adverse driving conditions, are possible throughout the region.
Individuals in the affected areas are advised to monitor local weather reports, anticipate power, telecommunication, and transportation disruptions, including adverse driving conditions and road closures, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities. Remember that running water can be dangerous - 15 cm (6 in) is enough to knock over an adult.
