Episode Narrative Showers and thunderstorms developed during the morning hours over central Oklahoma. During the afternoon hours, thunderstorms began to show brief, but persistent signs of rotation, that later resulted in three tornadoes. The most significant tornado of the day struck the western Oklahoma City metro area, producing EF2 damage. Other tornadoes were reported near Okeene, and over northwest Garfield county. Damage was reported with each of these thunderstorms, which included roof damage, tree and power line damage, and automobile accidents. No fatalities were reported, but five direct injuries were reported in western Oklahoma City.
Event Narrative The tornado initially touched down 3 miles west of Hillsdale causing damage. Several trees had been snapped and large limbs were broken. A wooden shed had parts of its roof and part of an overhang removed. The pieces of the overhang and roof were lying to the south 200 ft and to the east about 250 ft. Several sections of a metal gate (the sections were not attached to any fence) were blown approximately 25 feet. A small hay shed was also destroyed during the storm. One mile north of this location a metal gate had been blown over. The tornado moved north, crossing into Grant county before lifting 4 miles SSE of Nash. The tornado in Garfield produced EF0 damage, causing an estimated $15 thousand in damages.
