Erielle, thank you very much. The other breaking story this morning, the severe weather at least 39 reported tornadoes in central U.S. Since Friday and parts of that region now bracing for new threats of more violent twisters as well as major flash flooding and there's also severe weather moving toward the northeast today. Million Americans at risk in total and rob is right there tracking it all from ft. Worth, Texas. Rob, good morning to you. Reporter: Good morning, Dan. A huge swath of the country once again -- and we're getting all the severe weather we can handle. We got the wind, tornadoes and the hail. Of course the water as well. The dam that holds back the lake, those floodgates have been open. Army corps of engineers just trying to release some of that pressure. But of course, the most frightening images is that of tornadoes and there are more coming. Overnight, that dangerous storm system that spawned dozens of tornadoes in the plains is now pushing east. Arkansas, strong storms rotate almost forming a tornado. Toppling trees into homes. The windows of this building in ft. Smith, blown out. The roof of another, torn off. In Little Rock, severe storms there causing major damage to this motel. Parts of the building ripped off. In Oklahoma, residents surveying the damage after an ef-2 tornado tore through with 130-mile-per-hour winds. It ripped neighborhoods apart. Homes destroyed there. This building in Oklahoma City left with a gaping hole after being struck by lightning. In Texas, a disaster declaration in Abilene. After a tornado-worn storm severely damaged the city. This water tower leaking after it was punctured during a storm, and in Dallas, heavy rain causing highways to flood. That was blinding rain at times coming there the dallas/ft. Worth metropolitan area. Now that line is in through Louisiana. We have had tornado warnings there all morning long. I want to show you the radar, watches are up in that area to at least 10:00 local time. Now, we have the warnings that are just north of Lafayette. We're looking at flash flood watches, across parts of Kansas and Kansas City. You can see the low there. This is just a pregame for the bigger system that's now hitting the west coast and this is going to bring us a dangerous severe weather threat during the day tomorrow. We have a moderate risk for seeing not just tornadoes but large, dangerous, long-track tornadoes across the Texas panhandle. We'll talk more about the severe weather threat today across the northeast.
