A late summer storm produced severe weather across northern parts of the News 9 viewing area, causing damage and flooding across Oklahoma City.

That severe weather included a couple of tornado warnings, a handful of lowerings, a possible touch down and damaging winds across central Oklahoma, especially as the storm moved into the Oklahoma City metro after 9 p.m.

 Damage reports have been coming in piecemeal to the News 9 newsroom:
