OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A spokeswoman for Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City says the airport terminal is being evacuated a second time as strong storms that have produced tornadoes approached the area.

Karen Carney says in an email that the airport terminal was being evacuated about 7 p.m. Wednesday because of storm system south of the airport. She did not immediately return a phone call for comment.

Carney said in the email that no aircraft are currently arriving at the airport.

Carney said earlier that several hundred people were moved into a tunnel beneath the terminal shortly after 5 p.m. because of threatening storms then, and were allowed to return to the terminal shortly before 6 p.m.
