Daily Historical Weather for October 25
Strong winds and hail accompanied severe thunderstorms across central and southeast Oklahoma on October 25th, 1987. During the evening, hail up to the size of golf balls and 60 to 70 mph winds struck Lone Grove, in Carter County. The winds removed the roof of the high school gymnasium in Lone Grove, allowing water into the building and ruining the hardwood floor, a scene to be repeated almost three years later in neighboring Ardmore, on September 16, 1990. The storms also damaged several other area businesses and caused total damages estimated at $700,000.
