OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The National Weather Service has canceled part of the tornado watch in Oklahoma.

Forecaster Daryl Williams with the weather service in Norman says the threat is diminishing from Oklahoma City northward, but the watch remains in effect across southern Oklahoma and into north Texas until 9 p.m. Saturday.

Williams says storms will continue into the night Saturday and flooding is likely in areas that are already saturated.

The rain has caused concern that a lake in Shawnee could breach its dam. Emergency Management Director Donald Lynch says some water has been pumped out of the lake at Granada Estates, the danger continues because of the ongoing rainfall.
