Tornado causes damage in Kingfisher County

Associated Press - May 24, 2008 11:05 PM ET

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Emergency officials continued assessing damage Saturday night after a slow-moving storm system dropped several tornadoes in rural parts of north-central Oklahoma.

A spokeswoman for the Oklahoma Emergency Management Department says a twister destroyed at least three barns at a hog farm near Lacey in Kingfisher County.

No one at the farm was injured, and there were no immediate reports of injuries elsewhere, although the storm continued to pose a threat.

James Nimrod, the deputy emergency management director for Kingfisher County, says that a home there suffered damage and that its occupant was briefly trapped but emerged uninjured.

In adjacent Garfield County, a trailer was blown onto State Highway 74, about four miles south of Covington, although officials there reported no injuries.

Several other tornadoes touched down in the area near Hennessey in Kingfisher County, Bison in Garfield County and Marshall in northern Logan County. Many of the tornadoes, which were caught by television cameras, appeared to dissipate within moments of touching down.
