                 Severe Thunderstorms moved across portions of central, southern, and
                 southeastern Oklahoma during the morning hours of the 7th, with
                 numerous reports of large hail, winds as high as 90 mph, several areas
                 of wind damage and at least 1 fire started by lightning.
                 The most significant damage of the day was at Prague, where winds
                 estimated at up to 90 mph caused widespread damage across the
                 community. Civil defense officials estimated the damage in Prague at
                 $1,000,000. Winds knocked over the steeple at a local church and blew
                 chain-link fences down. Several mobile homes were damaged and at least
                 one was destroyed. Extensive damage was reported at the Prague High
                 School, where a portion of the roof was ripped off by the winds, and
                 the gym suffered significant water damage. The new scoreboard at the
                 high school football field was bent to the ground. No injuries were
                 reported from this storm.
                 Across southeast Oklahoma, wind damage was reported near Atoka. An
                 auction barn 2.5 miles south of Atoka was severely damaged by strong
                 thunderstorm winds. A quonset-hut type garage was destroyed by
                 thunderstorm winds 2.5 miles southwest of Atoka.
                 At Lehigh, a mobile home was damaged by severe thunderstorm winds.
                 Thunderstorm winds also downed trees at Davenport, 2.5 miles south of
                 Atoka, 2 miles southwest of Atoka, at Bokchito and 2 miles east, 1 mile
                 north of Liberty, at Seminole, and 4 miles northwest of Seminole. A
                 tree was blown on top of a house 1 mile east and 3/4 mile north of
                 Liberty. Power poles were damaged or destroyed 2.5 miles south of
                 Atoka, at Bokchito, and 2 miles east, 1 mile north of Liberty.
                 In Thackerville, lightning struck a power pole, then traveled down the
                 pole into the Thackerville High School, where it started a fire. The
                 resulting fire completely destroyed the school.

                 Thunderstorms which had developed in Kansas during the morning hours of
                 the 17th moved southward into portions of northwest and central
                 Oklahoma during the afternoon hours of the 17th. Thunderstorm outflow
                 from these storms is believed to help enhance the development of a
                 second round of severe thunderstorms which developed in western
                 Oklahoma and moved into north Texas. In Oklahoma these storms produced
                 winds measured up to 113 miles per hour, hail softball to football
                 size, and 2 tornadoes. The severe thunderstorms were located along 2
                 main paths. 
                 The first area of storms moved into Oklahoma along the Kansas border
                 near Manchester. These storms remained produced damage along a path
                 extending southward to an area between Richland and the area southwest
                 of El Reno in Canadian County. 
                 
                 Of the 500 to 800 permanent homes and businesses that were damaged by
                 the first area of severe thunderstorms, all were damaged by large hail
                 driven by high winds. In virtually every case, damage was on the north
                 side of the buildings. Buildings in several areas received lesser
                 damage on the east side, while very few were damaged on the west side.
                 None were damaged on the south side. Damage consisted of dented or
                 perforated siding (including 3 to 4 inch dents and holes in some
                 cases), or broken windows (hail passed through the walls in some
                 cases). A significant number of permanent homes and businesses examined
                 suffered enough damage to render them temporarily unusable.
                 Mobile homes suffered far worse damage than did permanent structures in
                 the same area. Those oriented north-south fared much better than those
                 oriented east-west, but in virtually all cases the windward sides were
                 severely dented, and in some cases stripped of siding. Windows and
                 doors on windward sides were shattered. In several cases, hail was
                 driven through the sides and the roof, and accumulated inside the
                 mobile home. It was estimated that less than one-forth of the 80 to 120
                 mobile homes that were damaged were liveable immediately afterward, and
                 more than half were damaged beyond repair.
                 Numerous barns, sheds, silos, etc. suffered major damage; several barns
                 were levelled. High winds caused most of the damage. 
                 Several hundred utility poles were downed by the storm.
                 Windows on several hundred vehicles were shattered by hail, in many
                 cases there was no glass left on the vehicle. Dents on the sides and
                 tops of cars, trucks, RV's, etc, were several inches in diameter in
                 some cases. 
                 Damage to trees and shrubs was extensive, especially in the Lahoma and
                 Drummond area where virtually every deciduous tree within miles, and
                 most of the evergreen trees, were stripped of leaves by the hail. There
                 were few uprooted trees; most of the trees that were damaged by wind
                 were either snapped off near the trunk (a few over 3 feet in diameter)
                 or had large branches removed. Lawns and fields in some areas were
                 beaten into a brown-green mulch. There were places along the storm path
                 where no green vegetation could be seen in any direction.
                 A detailed description of specific damage along selected areas along
                 the storms path follows:
                 ALFALFA COUNTY. Winds downed power poles and tore the roof off a barn
                 8 miles west of Manchester. Trees limbs were downed 4 miles south, 3
                 miles west of Manchester. Trees were downed at Goltry.
                 FROM MENO TO LAHOMA TO 5 MILES EAST OF LAHOMA. Widespread damage
                 occurred from 2.5 miles east of Meno to 3 miles east of Lahoma. The
                 storms struck Lahoma between 2:45 PM and 3 PM and was observed as a
                 large cloud of dust approaching from the north. Few, if any, structures
                 in Lahoma were left undamaged, with most damage being in the form of
                 stripped or damaged siding on the north and east sides of buildings. In
                 Lahoma, 102 residences were damaged or destroyed (25 mobile homes and
                 one house destroyed, 5 mobile homes and 25 homes with major damage, and
                 6 mobile homes and 40 houses with minor damage.) The Lahoma Post Office
                 and the Cimarron School suffered roof damage. Several businesses were
                 damaged, including an RV dealership that lost its entire inventory of
                 RV's and travel trailers, with the loss estimated at $500,000. 
                 The Oklahoma Mesonet site 2 miles west of Lahoma (3 miles east of Meno)
                 recorded onset of strong winds between 2:40 and 2:45 PM - a five minute
                 peak gust of 86 miles per hour. It then recorded a five minute winds
                 speed of 78 miles per hour and a peak gust of 113 miles per hour,
                 measured by wind instruments approximately 33 feet above the ground.
                 Another peak gust of 113 miles per hour was measured between 2:50 and
                 2:55 PM, before the wind equipment was damaged. (Based on damage
                 assessment, peak ground-level winds were estimated to be 75 to 100
                 MPH.)
                 Several people suffered minor injuries from broken glass, and bruises
                 from hail (the exact number is unknown). Three people were
                 hospitalized, one for a concussion. Several people were treated for
                 hypothermia.
                 DRUMMOND AREA. Virtually every structure in Drummond suffered damage,
                 mostly to windows, roofs, and siding on the north side. An 80 foot
                 metal storage building was destroyed, exposing farm equipment and other
                 contents. A barn 1/2 mile northeast of Drummond was destroyed, and the
                 debris was deposited 1/2 mile to the south. Ten to 15 mobile homes on
                 the north side of Drummond were destroyed or heavily damaged by hail;
                 all were oriented north-south and suffered major damage on their north
                 sides.
                 2 MILES SOUTH OF DRUMMOND. Tree and roof damage was found on several
                 homes and outbuildings from 1.5 miles west to 2 miles east of Route
                 132. In a cemetery 1.5 miles west of Highway 132, several headstones
                 were overturned, possibly by debris impact. The caretakers building was
                 destroyed, and debris was spread 100 yards or more to the south.
                 EAST OF LACEY. Within a 2 to 3 mile radius of the junction of routes 51
                 and 132, several large barns were damaged or destroyed and at least
                 three power poles were downed.
                 DOVER. Tree limbs and many power lines were downed.
                 THE WEST SIDE OF KINGFISHER. Widespread damage occurred to trees,
                 homes, windows, and outbuildings in and around the Lake Elmer area (4
                 miles west-northwest of downtown Kingfisher). A barn, with an estimated
                 value of $80,000, was destroyed, and debris blown for several hundred
                 yards to the south and southwest. Hail ranged from golfball size. One
                 mobile home was destroyed. 
                 MEEKER ADDITION, 2.5 MILES SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF KINGFISHER. Nearly every
                 home was damaged by hail, all on the north side. Most homes also had
                 minor roof damage. A total of 115 homes and eight apartments were
                 damaged. Hail penetrated siding on some homes, leaving holes several
                 inches in diameter. Another 17 homes received similar damage in a
                 subdivision 1 mile northwest of the Meeker Addition. Divots in the
                 ground, and dents or holes in exposed objects, indicate that a few
                 hailstones were baseball size.
                 2.5 MILES WEST-SOUTHWEST OF KINGFISHER TO 4.5 MILES SOUTHWEST OF
                 KINGFISHER. A small (F1) tornado touched down at 3:33 PM and moved
                 south-southeast for 2 miles. A 40 foot aluminum trailer, parked east-
                 west, was lifted over a pickup truck parked to its south and dropped on
                 its side 40 to 50 feet to the south. The pickup was rolled about 20
                 feet to the south and ended up on a pile of bricks and farm
                 accessories, with its nose about 6 to 8 feet off the ground. 
                 Based on eyewitness reports this was probably a gustnado which formed
                 along the leading edge of the storm.
                 5 MILES SOUTHWEST OF KINGFISHER ALONG HIGHWAY 81. A motorist drove into
                 large hail at this point at 3:48 PM. He suffered extreme hail damage to
                 his vehicle. The windshield and back window were completely broken out,
                 and there was severe damage to the body of the truck. He then continued
                 south on Highway 81 to the Okarche Police Department to warn them of
                 the approaching storm. The policeman who examined the truck reported a
                 hailstone was lying in the bed of the truck which measured 4.5 inches
                 by 6.5 inches and was said to "look like a football".
                 ALONG HIGHWAY 3, 3.5 MILES SOUTHEAST OF OKARCHE. Between 30 to 40
                 mobile homes, all oriented east-west, were heavily damaged or destroyed
                 by hail or strong winds estimated at 60 to 90 miles per hour.
                 Eyewitnesses reported hail from baseball to softball size. All mobile
                 homes were damaged on the north and east sides; siding was pounded, and
                 all windows were broken. Roofs were lifted from at least 3 mobile
                 homes, one of which disintegrated in a field 50 to 75 yards south of
                 the mobile home from which it was lifted. One residents dog was beaten
                 to death by the hail, and several chickens and ducks were also killed.
                 11 MILES WEST, 4 MILES SOUTH OF EL RENO.  Severe thunderstorm winds
                 ripped the door off a storm cellar.
                 Thunderstorm winds also caused other scattered areas of damage. Trees
                 were downed 4 miles north-northwest of Rush Springs, and 4 miles north
                 of Hastings, and trees and power lines were reported downed at Corum.
                 A second area of thunderstorms developed over portions of Roger Mills
                 County in northwest Oklahoma, and quickly became severe. A mobile home
                 was blown on top of another mobile home 2 miles west-northwest of
                 Hammon. The storms moved into Beckham County and began to produce
                 widespread damage in the Elk City area. Two semis were blown over at a
                 truck stop 2 miles west of Elk City. In the area 3 miles north of I-40
                 several houses sustained mostly minor roof damage. A house in Erick had
                 a picture window and its framing blown in. 
                 As the center of highest winds then moved toward the city of Carter and
                 strengthened, an F-1 gustnado developed. This gustnado moved from 1.5
                 miles north of Carter to 0.5 miles south of Carter. One and one-half
                 miles north of Carter several barns were destroyed, and the debris was
                 spread northwestward. A brick home had the east side garage door blown
                 in and the garage roof blown northwestward.
                 One mile north-northeast of Carter, a well-anchored mobile home was
                 completely destroyed, and the debris spread westward. The straps and
                 concrete anchors were pulled from the ground. 
                 One and one quarter miles northwest of Carter, the tornado moved
                 through a mobile home park where 3 out of 4 mobile homes were
                 completely destroyed. The fourth mobile home received extensive damage
                 but remained standing against the lower portion of several trees.
                 Numerous trees on the south side of the park were completely sheared
                 off 10 to 15 feet above the ground and carried a considerable distance
                 across State Highway 34. The Carter School had extensive roof damage.
                 Along the rest of the storm path, widespread damage was done by
                 straight-line winds. Five and one-half miles south-southwest of Carter,
                 a barn was destroyed, and a farmer lost 100% of his alfalfa, peanut and
                 watermelon crops. Some fields which were ready for harvest the day
                 before looked as if nothing had ever been planted.
                 The strong winds continued moving into southwest Oklahoma. The area of
                 strongest winds passed 2 to 3 miles west of the cities of Willow,
                 Brinkman, and Mangum, but were still close enough to cause extensive
                 damage.
                 In Brinkman, 2 grain elevators received major damage.
                 In Mangum, the entire city received winds of over 80 MPH for 5 to 7
                 minutes, with gusts in at least 2 areas over 100 MPH.
                 The first area of damage from winds in excess of 100 MPH in Mangum was
                 about 1 mile long and a few hundred yards wide extending from the
                 fairgrounds on the far northwest side of the city south-southeast to
                 about 1/2 mile north of the downtown area. At the fairgrounds a large
                 span building had most of its roof and 2 walls blown down. Just
                 southeast of this location a small wood frame house, a mobile home and
                 several were completely destroyed. Signs and power poles were blown
                 over. The Mangum Elementary School at the south end of this area of
                 maximum winds had extensive wind damage to the roof and west walls.
                 The 2nd area of strong winds around Mangum was located on the east side
                 of the city, and was about 2 miles long. At the beginning (north end)
                 of the damage path, several barns and outbuildings were damaged. The
                 middle of this area had major roof and some wall damage to several
                 brick houses. A 450 foot tall cable TV and communication tower located
                 at the south end of this second damage area was toppled. In the area 1
                 mile east of Mangum, 2 people were trapped inside their truck when
                 trees and power lines fell on top of the truck.
                 Localized wind damage also continued some distance west of Mangum. A
                 small hay barn 11 miles west of Mangum was blown down.
                 A summary of damage from this second storm includes at least 8 mobile
                 homes totally destroyed, at least some damage to 70 percent of the
                 approximately 800 homes in Carter, Willow, Brinkman, Mangum,
                 significant roof damage to about 20 businesses, and nearly total
                 destruction of all outbuilding s and barns in the direct path of the
                 storms.
                 The continuous damage path was about 42 miles long and 3 to 8 miles
                 wide. There were no reported injuries with this 2nd area of storms.
                 Wind damage also occurred in other areas away from this main damage
                 path. Severe thunderstorm winds blew down an 80,000 pound oil drilling
                 rig and truck carrier 2 miles north of Sentinel. Winds from isolated
                 severe thunderstorms produced tree damage 4 miles south of Hastings and
                 4 miles south of Delhi.
                 These storms continued their southward movement, where they caused
                 intermittent damage across Jackson County and Tillman County before
                 moving across the Red River into Texas. Power poles were reported
                 downed in Frederick.
