More Stormy Weather Ahead

Posted:

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- More tornadoes are expected across the nation's midsection through the middle of the week, but it is unlikely that any outbreak will be as widespread as one that hit the South last month.

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., says more violent weather is expected after a tornado killed at least 89 people at Joplin, Mo., on Sunday. Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma could see tornadoes Monday and Tuesday, and the bad weather could spread to the East Coast by Friday.

The head of the storm center, Greg Carbin, says that while Joplin's death toll was high, Sunday's storms couldn't compare to those that killed more than 300 across the South on April 27. He says storms this week should be more isolated than the Alabama outbreak.
