SW OKLAHOMA (KSWO) - Damage assessments are underway after the greatest severe weather risk we've seen this year.

Sunday was a wild night for some viewers in our area who saw large hail, extremely high winds and rain. The National Weather Service predicted winds of 100-miles-an-hour in Frederick. Those winds were tornado strength, but there was no tornado. 

The winds caused damage in Frederick and in Geronimo in Comanche County. Emergency crews tell us there were several reports of damage, including an old fire station that is partially collapsed. They also tell us there is lots of debris, at least ten downed power lines, a few gas lines ripped completely out of the ground and a path of barns knocked down. We were able to get video of one resident's shed that got picked up by the winds and tossed into another yard.

At the height of the storm, there were nearly 2,000 residents left in the dark, due to outages in Comanche, Stephens, Cotton, Tillman and Jefferson counties.

The principal of Empire Elementary, Josh Skiles, says due to Sunday’s storm damage, they do not have any water access, so has canceled school today.

Our SkyWARN 7 Storm Trackers provided early warning for the storms Sunday morning and followed the storms throughout the night, with live wall-to-wall coverage for two hours.

Make sure to download our KSWO 7 News weather app, so you can stay up to date with our live streaming and coverage, even with the power goes out.

We appreciate all the viewer pictures and encourage you to send any video or pictures to news@kswo.com

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
