(KMOV.com) -- All tornado warnings have expired, but thunderstorm warnings and watches still blanket the News 4 viewing area as the storms rumble through and dump massive amounts of rain.

Multiple thunderstorm warnings are still in effect throughout the News 4 viewing area and some have the potential to become severe.  The whole viewing area is under a severe thunderstorm watch until 2 a.m. on Sunday.

Flash flooding has become a big concern for most areas and the whole News 4 viewing area is under a flash flood warning.  News 4's Brian Feldman reported seeing two cars almost completely submerged at the intersections of Vandeventer Avenue and Clayton Avenue.

News 4 is getting numerous reports of water standing on roadways.  If you have to be on the road, please be cautious of standing water and never drive into water covering roadways.

Check watches and warnings.
