Weather service issues tornado watch for Arkansas

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Forecasters say more rain is in store for the middle of the country as wet and windy storms shuffle through the region again.

A slow-moving storm system that socked a corridor from Texas to Missouri on Monday could bring more flash floods, hail, strong winds and possibly tornadoes on Tuesday.

The National Weather Service issued Tuesday tornado watches for parts of Louisiana, east Texas and Arkansas. Two tornadoes in the San Antonio area injured at least eight people Monday night.

A meteorologist with the weather service's Storm Prediction Center says the storms are expected to stick around for the next few days, and then peter out as they meander east.
