Severe thunderstorms in portions of central and eastern Oklahoma
during the afternoon and evening hours of the 13th and the early

winds and large hail. A small short-lived tornado briefly touched
down 1 mile south of Criner at 1330CST. This F0 tornado produced
minor tree damage. A tornado developed 0.5 miles northeast of
Tishomingo at 1528CST. This F0 tornado moved east-northeast and
dissipated 2 miles northeast of Tishomingo at 1531CST. The tornado
damaged trees, blew over truck trailers and blew down and entry gate
to a ranch. The third tornado touched down at 1624 CST on the south
side of Bearden and moved northeast, touching down intermittently
for 25 miles. The tornado mainly passed across open country. However,
just north-northeast of Pharaoh, the tornado destroyed 3 barns and 2
sheds and produced minor damage to 2 homes. In this same area, the
tornado which reached F1 intensity and was 175 yards wide picked up a
heavy 22 foot goose trailer and slammed it into a one ton truck. As a
result, both vehicles sustained major damage. The tornado weakened as
it moved into Okmulgee County and lifted at 1702 CST 7 miles
southwest of Okmulgee. Tree damage occurred along the entire path of
the tornado.
Strong thunderstorm winds destroyed a barn and damaged several
buildings 2 miles west of Cherokee City, Arkansas, overturned a boat

of Wagoner. Strong thunderstorm winds downed trees in Noble,
destroyed a barn, damaged several roofs, overturned two campers and
downed trees in Bradley and damaged two barns and downed trees near
Antlers.
The thunderstorms also produced heavy rainfall of up to 9 inches
which resulted in flash flooding. Many county roads were flooded in
northern Cherokee County, and several rural roads were covered by
water west of Eufaula. An underpass on State Highway 16 in the town
of Beggs was underwater, and 71st Street was flooded 3 miles east of
Broken Arrow. High water on Coal Creek near Dewar resulted in the
evacuation of 20 families. Some residents in Paradise South Mobile
Home Park in Muskogee were evacuated due to rising waters. Many
streets were flooded in Bixby and in Muskogee. Street flooding also
occurred in Okmulgee, Henryetta and Stilwell. Street flooding up to 4
feet deep occurred in Okemah. A road was closed due to high water
from Spring Brook Creek near Stratford. A county road and two bridges
were closed because of high water 4 miles west of Arpelar. Lone Grove
Bridge west of Scipio and Wild Horse Bridge on Pyle Mountain were

counties during the early morning of the 25th. The majority of the
people evacuated were in the flood plain of Tar Creek in the
