At least nine people were killed, including a mother and her child. More than 200,000 people are without power. And now the big threat is flooding after nearly 11 inches of rain fell in Oklahoma City.
This terrifying, multi-vortex tornado in Canadian County was just one of the twisters to wreak havoc Friday in the Oklahoma City area.

Now, the aftermath of heavy rains has caused widespread flooding in the metro area.

The impact of the tornadoes spread beyond Oklahoma.

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin has seen her state weather a beating in the last two weeks. But her outlook remains resolute.
"Well, it has been a very trying couple weeks for our state. We may be knocked down, but it's only temporary, and we'll be back up on our feet," Fallin said.
