Monday marks the one-year anniversary of a massive tornado that swept through Woodward, Oklahoma, on April 15, 2012.

Six Oklahomans were killed and dozens were injured when the EF-3 touched down.

Authorities say a signal tower for the city's tornado sirens was struck by lightning, leaving little warning.

The tornado ripped a path two miles long, damaging nearly 100 homes and businesses.

Here's a look back at some of the stories we reported on News9.com after the tornado hit Woodward:
