Episode Narrative Thunderstorms developed by mid afternoon in northwest Oklahoma near a warm front. A long-lived supercell became organized over Major County and moved southeast, leaving a swath of large damaging hail in its wake.

Baseball size hail was reported west of Fairview, with softball size hail west of Okeene. As the storm moved southeast, the coverage of hail increased, with numerous reports of golfball size - and a few baseball size - hail from near Kingfisher to northwest Oklahoma City. The storm continued southeast through Oklahoma City, causing extensive damage.

Damage was widespread and significant in and around the Oklahoma City metro area. Numerous vehicles were heavily damaged or even totaled by the large amounts of damaging hail. Numerous buildings suffered roof, window and structural damage, and trees and vegetation were shredded by the large hail. Hail drifts reached several feet deep over some areas, and a few locations reported hail still on the ground more than 12 hours later.

As the storm continued southeast, it continued to produce hail near golf ball size through parts of Seminole, Hughes, and Atoka counties.

While exact damage figures were not available, estimates place the monetary losses in excess of $500 million.
