The Latest: Team finds damage from 4th twister near Tulsa

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The Latest on tornados that struck in northeast Oklahoma (all times local):

6:50 p.m.

Survey teams in northeastern Oklahoma now say the area was hit by at least four tornadoes during a round of weekend storms that hammered a number of businesses in Tulsa.

Forecasters say they confirmed a fourth storm track near Chelsea, about 40 miles (64 kilometers) northeast of Tulsa. Other storms hit at Broken Arrow and Oologah early Sunday morning.

The Chelsea storm was rated EF-1 on a scale of tornado damage, with winds between 86 and 110 mph. An EF-2 storm wind winds up to 135 mph hit Tulsa's midtown section, causing so much damage that city officials condemned 10 businesses. A home was also destroyed, and about 200 homes and businesses were damaged.

About 30 people were injured in Tulsa, but no other injuries were reported in storms farther away from the city.

4:20 p.m.

Inspectors have now condemned 10 businesses that sustained structural damage when tornadoes swept across midtown Tulsa and other parts of northeastern Oklahoma.

Notices were posted by city inspectors Monday prohibiting the structures from being occupied or used after they were heavily damaged by an EF2 twister early Sunday. The businesses were AT&T and Woodcraft stores, AspenDental, Panera, CarTec, Whataburger, TGI Fridays, The Flame Broiler, Vintage Stock and H&R Block.

Emergency management officials in Tulsa say one home was destroyed and about 200 homes and businesses were damaged by the tornado that struck at 1:19 a.m. About 30 people were injured.

Officials say no injuries were reported later Sunday after two other tornadoes struck the southeast Tulsa suburb of Broken Arrow and near Oologah, about 20 miles (30 kilometers) northeast of Tulsa.

2:30 p.m.

Emergency management officials in northeast Oklahoma say one house was destroyed and almost 200 homes and businesses were damaged by a tornado that injured about 30 people near midtown Tulsa.

Tulsa Area Emergency Management Agency Director Roger Jolliff said Monday that 173 businesses and 25 homes were damaged by an EF2 twister that struck at 1:19 a.m. Sunday. Two businesses were condemned by city inspectors who were assessing the structural integrity of buildings damaged by the tornado.

Officials say the tornado had wind speeds of 120-130 mph (195-210 kph) and also damaged power poles and trees.

No injuries were reported later Sunday after two other tornadoes struck the southeast Tulsa suburb of Broken Arrow and near Oologah, about 20 miles (30 kilometers) northeast of Tulsa.

9:20 a.m.

The National Weather Service says three tornadoes struck northeast Oklahoma, including an EF2 twister that caused heavy damage and injured at least 30 people near midtown Tulsa.

Meteorologist Bart Haake said Monday that the Tulsa tornado touched down at 1:19 a.m. Sunday. Eight minutes later an EF1 tornado struck the southeast Tulsa suburb of Broken Arrow and an EF1 tornado then touched down five minutes after that near Oologah, about 20 miles (30 kilometers) northeast of Tulsa.

No injuries are reported from the last two twisters.

Haake said the Tulsa tornado had wind speeds of 120-130 mph (195-210 kph) while the others had winds of 90-100 mph (145-160 kph).

St. Francis Hospital spokeswoman Lauren Landwerlin says about 30 people were treated at the hospital, including three in "non-critical" condition.
