TULSA, Oklahoma -

A tornado ripped through Ottawa County, killing at least one and injuring at least six on Sunday night. The tornado also touched down in Baxter Springs, Kansas. It caused significant damage in both cities.

Additional counties still are under advisories.  National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch in several eastern Oklahoma counties until 2 a.m. The watch is in effect for Adair, Cherokee, Sequoyah, Delaware, Choctaw, Haskell, Latimer and Pushmataha counties.

The watch also affects Benton, Sebastian and Washington counties in Arkansas.

The potential for severe weather remains for storms as the dryline -- the line of dryer air following the storms -- moves through the far eastern part of the state.

The WARN Team remains in the News On 6 Weather Center, monitoring conditions for any changes.

The storms moved into the Tulsa metro area about 10 a.m. and were out by about 11:30 a.m. The storms were technically below severe weather criteria but still produced moderate to heavy rains, lightning, strong winds and small bursts of hail.

South winds are expected to gust as high as 60 mph as a dryline moves through the area late morning or early afternoon. Motorists are advised to use caution due to sudden gusts of wind - especially drivers of high profile vehicles in crosswinds.
