AMARILLO, Texas (AP) - Severe storms are bringing heavy rain, hail and reports of tornadoes to West Texas and the Panhandle.

John Cockrell, a meteorologist in the Amarillo office of the National Weather Service, says multiple tornadoes were reported in the Panhandle’s Donley and Ochiltree counties.

Cockrell says the weather service hasn’t received any reports of significant damage or injuries. Crews will likely survey the area tomorrow.

Tornados were also reported further south in Hall and Glasscock counties, where there were no immediate reports of damage.

A tornado watch is in effect until 10 p.m. for 46 Texas counties across a swath of the state from the Panhandle to the Mexico border. The watch also extends into parts of Oklahoma and Kansas.

The Storm Prediction Center warns severe thunderstorms are expected to continue Sunday night across a broad portion of the Plains.
