Had Our First Big Tornado Warning Today


It was shake, rattle, and roll in The Village today. The warning sirens were going for a couple of hours as a big line of thunderstorms packing 70 plus MPH winds came through our neighborhood. There was no damage at our house as far as we can tell, but other places, it seems, weren't so lucky. In Bethany, several buildings were damaged by straight line winds. A funnel seems to appeared over on 39th and Rockwell and damaged some businesses and some of the athletic facilities belonging to my alma mater Southern Nazarene University.
Damage reported throughout Oklahoma County
Funnel brings moments of terror to Bethany
