Three killed in severe storms in NE Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

Nowata Co, OK_In northeastern Oklahoma, three people were killed in Friday's storms.
Two adults and an infant died inside a double-wide trailer on Friday, said
Nowata County Undersheriff Doug Sonenberg.

"We've had several residences in this general area that were damaged, the
one behind me being the worst. It was destroyed," he said.

The victims were found inside a creek nearby, Sonenberg confirmed.

In the central part of Oklahoma, a severe storm developed quickly Friday
afternoon in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area, dumping heavy rain and
unleashing a 76-mph wind gust at Tinker Air Force Base. A large tree was
blown onto a road in southwest Oklahoma City and some power poles were
damaged.

A second round of thunderstorms moved through the Oklahoma City metro area
on Friday night, prompting the delay of several high school football games
in the area due to lightning.
