The remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine have moved north after killing two people in Texas and forcing more than 100 high-water rescues. The storm system also produced several tornadoes.
Three tornadoes were reported in Oklahoma as the system moved into that state. A few homes were damaged, a tractor-trailer was blown over and power lines were toppled.
Flash flood watches are in effect until this morning for Oklahoma. The storm also has started moving into Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas. Flood watches are in effect for parts of those states until tonight.
Hermine packed a relatively light punch when it made landfall Monday night, and many Texas residents said they felt unprepared for yesterday's sudden flooding.
