LIVE: Powerful Storms Rage From Colorado to Georgia

Gusty and drenching thunderstorms will continue to drop southeastward from Arkansas and northern Mississippi to Alabama and Georgia through this evening.

At the same time, numerous severe thunderstorms will continue to erupt across the central High Plains and down to the northern Texas-New Mexico border through the early evening hours, Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said.

"Already, a brief tornado has touched down in far northwestern Nebraska (near Gordon) and we will continue to see the strongest thunderstorms produce isolated tornadoes, as well as damaging winds, hail and blinding downpours. These thunderstorms will tend to cluster together during the overnight hours across Kansas, continuing to produce damaging winds and blinding and flooding downpours," she said.

The thunderstorms will then track into Missouri on Saturday with yet another cluster set to erupt across the Texas Panhandle and Oklahoma later Saturday. Cities in the path of the severe and drenching thunderstorms tonight include Denver, Wichita and Dodge City, Kan., Amarillo, Texas. The storms will also graze Oklahoma City.
