Numerous strong to severe thunderstorms developed in southwestern
Oklahoma during the afternoon hours on the 29th and moved eastward
into central and eastern Oklahoma during the evening and nighttime
hours. Four weak tornadoes occurred in Oklahoma with this outbreak of
severe weather. An F0 tornado occurred 2 miles west of Elk City and
knocked down power poles and power lines. An F0 tornado briefly
touched down in an open field in extreme southeast Tillman County 6
miles southeast of Grandfield, with no damage reported. The third
tornado had the longest path of the four. This tornado traveled along
a 5 mile path from 4 miles east of Alex to 3 miles west of Criner.
The tornado was narrow (35 yards wide) and produced mainly F0 damage
with a small area of F1 damage in Mc Clain County. The fourth tornado
developed after midnight in Lincoln County and moved into Okfuskee
County along its 4.5 mile path from 2 miles southeast of Prague to
2.5 miles west-southwest of Paden. The tornado was an F1 and averaged
100 yards in width. The tornado rolled an abandoned bus 75 feet to
the east-southeast and lifted a camper trailer 75 feet to the north.
The tornado also tossed an 18 foot horse trailer into a barn,
demolishing both structures. The tornado produced an estimated
$250,000 in damage.
Large hail also accompanied many of the storms. Softball size hail
was reported in Texola and near Sayre. Baseball size hail fell
shortly before 10 pm and then again after 11 pm in Waurika. The large
hail in combination with strong winds and flash flooding caused
between $250,000 and $500,000 in damage in Waurika. Numerous other
locations in southwest Oklahoma received quarter to golfball size
hail.
Strong winds also caused widespread damage throughout southwest,
central, and eastern Oklahoma. During the evening hours, a very small
but intense microburst destroyed a building in Verden. Damage was
estimated at $45,000. Strong thunderstorm winds near 70 mph blew out
windows at several businesses in Frederick and blew a portion of the
roof off the Frederick Middle School. Strong thunderstorm winds blew
down a power line near Hammon, and winds estimated at between 70 and
80 mph occurred near Granite. In Dover, a downburst produced winds
estimated at 60 mph which destroyed a mobile home, downed a power
pole and some trees and broke off numerous tree limbs up to 10 inches
in diameter. In Okmulgee County, severe thunderstorm winds during the
early morning hours of the 30th blew an unoccupied mobile home over 5
miles to the west of Beggs. Strong winds in Alex broke off tree
limbs, downed several power poles, and tore part of a roof off of a
house. High winds from a thunderstorm, severely damaged a sheet metal
barn and blew down trees 2 miles south-southeast of Prague. Winds
from severe thunderstorms blew down numerous trees along a path from
2 miles southeast of Prague to 4 miles east of Prague. Strong winds
downed trees 5 miles south of Randlett.
Widespread flash flooding was reported with these storms. High water
in Waurika flooded 3 homes. One home which was not occupied had about
a foot of water flowing through it. A few other homes in Waurika were
sandbagged to help keep flood waters out. In Cotton County, water was
flowing over Highway 36 south of route 70, over a road 1 to 2 miles
south of Randlett, and over a roadway 3 mile south and one-half mile
west of Devol during the evening hours of the 29th. Near Comanche
travel was reduced to one lane due to water covering Highway 81. In
Jefferson County, high water covered Highway 81 about 2 miles north
of Addington.
Lightning strikes also caused damage during these storms. A home in
Shattuck was struck by lightning. The fire resulting from the
lightning damaged electronic equipment and started a grass fire in
the backyard of the home. A fire from a lightning strike destroyed a
trailer 2 miles west of Comanche. A lightning strike to a home 6
miles north of Waurika resulted in minor damage. In Quinton,
lightning struck and killed several cattle.
