Severe weather heading east as record flooding continues

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Almost 90 reports of damaging storms were recorded over the weekend from Texas to Illinois, including a tornado near St. Louis and golf ball-sized hail that covered the ground near the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area.

That storm system is heading east Monday and expected to deliver more severe weather to the Deep South and Southeast. Hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes remain the biggest threats.

Melting snow in the upper Midwest is forcing rivers higher, but at least these areas aren't expecting significant rainfall over the next few days.

Flood warnings remain in effect for much of the Plains and upper Midwest as many rivers are again at or near record levels.
