The governors of Missouri and Oklahoma declared states of emergency. "Now there are 21 million under a flood watch or warning from eastern Oklahoma up into Indiana", Guy said.

Levees were straining to contain the floods in Missouri.

Authorities told 150 households to evacuate the town of Pocahontas, Arkansas, on Monday, as rising Black River overflowed, closing several roads.

The Missouri Department of Transportation said Monday that several sections of the stretch of I-44 between Rolla and Lebanon are underwater. At least 11 more deaths have been attributed to the pattern of severe weather. A severe thunderstorm located over Fort Benning in Georgia was at risk for developing into a twister, the weather service said. The National Weather Service says parts of the Florida Panhandle, Alabama, Georgia and MS could be affected.

In Arkansas, four more people died from massive flooding. Authorities warned the death toll was expected to go up.

Three tornadoes ripped through East Texas Sunday, killing four people. In Missouri, a 72-year-old woman drowned despite her husband's efforts to save her as their vehicle was swept away by rushing waters after heavy rains caused flooding.

The body of a 72-year-old woman was found in a submerged vehicle in a field in southwest Missouri Saturday.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says Gideon Jenkins, of Richland, was killed early Sunday when his vehicle was caught in flash floodwaters as he attempted to drive across a low-water crossing in Pulaski County. A flood warning was in effect for rivers in Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana.

Search teams were going door to door yesterday after Saturday's tornadoes flattened homes, uprooted trees and flipped several pickup trucks at a dealership in Canton.

At least four were killed and 49 people were hurt, Canton Mayor Lou Ann Everett said. At least two other people reportedly died in storm-related incidents, while two children were missing after their mother's auto was swept from a road by floodwaters in Madison County. The largely rural area is about 50 miles (80 kilometers) east of Dallas.

The National Weather Service placed Henderson County under a tornado watch at 5:23 p.m. Rotation was seen as the storm tracked through the Star Harbor area.

The storm that tore through the central United States from Texas to IL could spawn damaging winds, hail and tornadoes as it heads into parts of the Middle Atlantic and Northeast, the National Weather Service said.
