Severe storms with powerful winds moving through Texas
DALLAS (AP) - A line of severe thunderstorms is bringing strong winds and the risk of tornadoes to parts of Texas and Arkansas.
The Storm Prediction Center says wind gusts of more than 75 mph (120 kph) were reported Wednesday morning at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The powerful winds also toppled trees, power lines and fences in the Dallas area.
The storm system is expected to affect Arkansas and other parts of the Mississippi River Valley later Wednesday.
Forecasters say eastern Arkansas, northwestern Mississippi and western Tennessee face the greatest risk of severe weather Wednesday. The Storm Prediction Center says tornadoes could develop in those areas, and large hail is also possible.
