(DALLAS) — Storms are expected to roll through Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas again on Saturday, with hail reaching tennis-ball size, winds over 70 miles per hour in some areas, and more flash flooding.

Storms on Friday had rainfall rates that exceeded 3 inches an hour in parts of Texas and Oklahoma.

High winds caused damage in Oklahoma, ripping off roofs, downing power lines and shattering windows. About 10,000 customers in Norman, Oklahoma, were left without power.

Damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes are expected to continue on Saturday with the threat pushing eastward on Sunday, with only a few tornadoes expected but continuing threats of damaging winds and large hail.

Flash flood watches stretch from Texas to Kansas and will most likely expand Saturday.
