February 10, 2009 Tornadoes

Thunderstorms developed early in the afternoon of February 10, 2009 from near the Lawton area, northeast toward the Oklahoma metro area. Thunderstorms became severe relatively quickly as they moved through Caddo and Grady counties, and began to show signs of rotation as they moved toward western Oklahoma City. One supercell thunderstorm spawned several tornadoes as it moved northeast through central Oklahoma. Sporadic damage was reported alongthe storm's path, with some of the damage being significant as the supercell moved through northern Oklahoma county and southern Logan county. Other supercells developed near the same areas of Caddo and Grady Counties and also moved northeast. Some locations received several rounds of very large hail through the afternoon.

Later in the afternoon of February 9th, a second area of thunderstorms developed over northern Texas. Several supercell thunderstorms developed and moved northeast toward the Red River. One supercell thunderstorm moved northeast over Clay county and northwest Montague County. A tornado developed as it moved into Jefferson county near the Red River and continued northeast through western Love County and into Carter County. Significant damage was reported in and around the Lone Grove area and over the far north sides of Ardmore. There were 8 fatalities in and around Lone Grove. The tornado crossed U.S. Interstate Highway 35 and eventually crossed into southern Murray County. In addition to the tornado, wind damage was reported in Coal and Atoka Counties, and minor injuries were reported with the Atoka County thunderstorms.
