OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. -- An Oklahoma sheriff is crediting early warnings for a low death toll during a tornado outbreak that ravaged the Plains and Midwest.

Authorities say a 79-year-old man died Sunday when a twister flattened much of a mobile home park southeast of Oklahoma City.

Sheriff Mike Booth credited TV and radio stations that provided wall-to-wall broadcasts of the violent weather.

Lindsay Carter, of Shawnee, says she fled her home when she heard a tornado was coming.

When she returned, she had lost part of her home's roof, but some of her neighbors' homes had vanished.

Forecasters say tornadoes could hit Monday in parts of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma, roughly the same area hit Sunday night.
