There were reports of damage in the region, especially in Oklahoma City, the Weather Channel reported. "There's debris just everywhere, and there's a lot of water on the roadways," Capt. Paul Timmons of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol told CNN.
Twitter users in the area posted that they could hear sirens.
You know you're in Oklahoma when the tornado sirens go off and everyone goes outside to take a look.

Multiple ramps to Interstate 35 were shut down because of the rainfall and National Weather Service meteorologist Jonathan Kurtz told the Associated Press that people need to stay informed on the storm. "People just really need to stay weather aware, have a plan and understand that severe storms are possible across portions of the southern plains almost daily through Saturday," Kurtz said.
One person was injured in Kansas, but the degree of harm was unknown, TWC wrote.
