Episode Narrative A series of severe thunderstorms produced widespread wind damage. One of the storms knocked a tree down onto a mobile home, killing one occupant. Wind speeds up to 110 mph knocked a series of power poles down as well. Several power outages were reported due to lightning or trees being knocked down onto power lines.
Event Narrative Significant severe thunderstorm winds snapped several wooden power poles near the base along highway 20. One concrete pole was knocked down to the ground and at least one small plane was flipped over at Pryor field. Many residents were without power for over a day due to the numerous trees and power lines that were downed in the area. Based on this evidence from a storm survey, it is estimated that peak winds approached 110 mph.
