At least one person was killed as tornadoes and severe storms swept through northeast Oklahoma Wednesday evening.
One person was killed and several others injured at a mobile home park in Sand Springs, about seven miles west of Tulsa, after a possible tornado formed nearby, said the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office. Some 36,500 power outages had been reported in northeast Oklahoma as of 3:30 a.m. Thursday morning local time.
Another possible tornado briefly touched down in Moore, about 11 miles south of Oklahoma City, reports KOCO. A radio tower was toppled and a few roofs were taken off homes, but no injuries were immediately reported, said a spokesperson for the city. School was cancelled Thursday because of damage across the district, Moore Public Schools said on its Facebook page.
No major injuries were reported in Tulsa, said fire officials. A children's gym collapsed and search and rescue operations were underway at a mobile home park, said the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office.
The National Weather Service issued tornado warnings and sirens blared as severe storms moved through central and northeast Oklahoma. Cars and trucks were overturned on I-35, KOCO reported.
The Storm Prediction Center warned that a clash of warm and cooler air masses could lead to severe storms. The storms produced at least one tornado, heavy rain and half-dollar size hail.
