NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Forecasters are warning that there could be "some big storms" today and Thursday in the middle of the country.

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma says the Southern Plains could get large hail, damaging winds and a number of tornadoes today.

Then tomorrow, the focus shifts to the mid-Mississippi River Valley, including virtually all of Illinois.

Emergency officials say a tornado touched down briefly last night in southeastern Kansas.
