TEXAS, USA — Strong storms are threatening parts of the Lone Star state and into Oklahoma on Monday with a high risk for severe weather.

The Storm Prediction Center tweeted out on Monday that a Particularly Dangerous Situation Tornado Watch was issued for much of Oklahoma and parts of Texas.

In the tweet, the SPC mentioned the only other watch like this was issued for Alabama on the April 27, 2011, historic outbreak.

Central Texas is thankfully not within this severe threat, but if you have friends and family in North Texas and Central Oklahoma, you should make sure they are aware of the threat.
