Oklahoma flood victims rescued as tornadoes and flooding threaten millions

Emergency workers on speed boats zipped through flooded roads in central Oklahoma, pulling flood victims from their houses as millions of people in the central United States face a severe weather system that brought hail, heavy rain and flooding.

Teams of fire personnel could be seen helping residents, including the elderly and children, out of their flooded houses and out of the area.

The NWS said it expected severe weather across Texas, Louisiana and into Alabama and as far north as Iowa and Nebraska throughout the day and into the night.

Flooding in the area forced evacuations and high water rescues overnight.
