Tornadoes Cause Property Damage In Southwestern Oklahoma
OKLAHOMA CITY - A large tornado tore through parts of Kiowa County late Tuesday into early Wednesday, causing some damage between the towns of Hobart and Rocky, according to law enforcement in the area. It was a storm first spotted by News 9 Storm Trackers Val and Amy Castor.
Law enforcement officials in the area said one barn was destroyed and damage done to a roof about a quarter-mile west of Highway 183 and CR1320.
Severe weather is happening in western Oklahoma Tuesday night, and a tornado watch has been issued for the Oklahoma City metro area. A tornado watch was issued late Tuesday night for Noble, Okfuskee, Oklahoma, Payne, Pontotoc, Pottawatomie, Roger Mills, Seminole, Stephens, Tillman and Washita counties until 5 a.m.
The threat is there for all types of extreme weather, including tornadoes.
As these storms move into the state they will eventually form into a line of storms, lowering the tornado threat.
Wind, hail and flooding will be the greatest severe threat for much of the state Tuesday night.
The line of storms will move into Oklahoma City around midnight. This line will have heavy to severe storms along it.
