SHAWNEE, Okla. As Oklahoma's governor tours areas that were damaged by yesterday's tornadoes, residents are watching for more of the same kind of weather. Forecasters are warning of tornadoes and damaging hail later today.

A tornado near Shawnee left two people dead yesterday. The two men in their 70s were found in or near a mobile home park outside Shawnee that was leveled by the twister. At least 39 others throughout Oklahoma were injured.

One man who sought refuge in a storm cellar with his wife and two children emerged to find that their mobile home had vanished. James Hoke said, "Everything is gone."

Residents of Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri are also being warned to watch for bad weather today.

A tornado that touched down in Wichita, Kan., yesterday knocked out power to thousands of homes and businesses, but missed the most populated areas of Kansas' biggest city.
