Severe Storms Leave Behind Damage In Woods County
WAYNOKA, Oklahoma - Severe storms hit hard in parts of the state last night, including areas of Waynoka.
The Eastman building, a notable building in Waynoka, was damaged in Tuesday night's storms. The building was most recently used as a hotel. The area is currently blocked off after the roof ripped off and bricks fell all over the pavement.
"Every time we lose a building, it hurts because it changes things. You go around town and you're starting to see a lot of vacant lots," said resident James Stallings.
The area also saw plenty of tree debris, due to severe winds. Much of town was under a severe storm and tornado warning for parts of Tuesday night.
The NWS confirmed a tornado briefly touched down in Waynoka between 7:00-8:00 p.m.
The Woods County Sheriff's Office confirmed there are no reports of injuries.
