A Tornado Watch remains in effect until 5 a.m. for two thirds of the ArkLaTex.
Here's some safety tips you may want to follow if find yourself in the path of a tornado:
If you're inside a building:
Go to a safe room, like a basement, cellar or the lowest building level.
If you don't have a basement, go to an inside room. KSLA News 12's StormTracker Steve says the safest place to be during a twister is an area where you can get the most walls between you and the outside of the building.
If you're outside with no shelter nearby, FEMA says to get into a vehicle, buckle your seatbelt, and put your head down below the windows. Cover your head with your hands and a blanket, coat or cushion. However, StormTracker Steve says you're safer lying in a ditch or low area, and not under a bridge or overpass.
After the storm, FEMA suggests the following:
Wear sturdy shoes or boots as glass or nails could be on the ground.
Don't go near dangling or loose power lines.
Text, don't talk, unless there's a life-threatening situation. This is just to keep the phone lines open for emergency workers.
