OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma House has temporarily suspended its daily session and members were urged to head to the basement of the Capitol after tornado sirens sounded outside the building.

Faxon Republican Rep. Don Armes was presiding over the House Monday afternoon when he said troopers alerted him to worsening weather conditions in the Oklahoma City area. A tornado warning was issued for several Oklahoma counties, including the Oklahoma City area, after reports of a tornado on the ground.

A few legislative members and lobbyists continued to mill about the fourth floor of the Capitol building, and the Senate continued to meet for its afternoon session.
