Tornado rips through Edmond homes, hospital
EDMOND, Okla. – Sunday’s string of tornadoes started in Edmond but the town didn’t get the worst of the damage.
The storms continued on to devastate the Wellston and Twin Lakes areas where at least one person has been confirmed dead.
Police in Edmond estimate nearly a dozen homes suffered damage in Sunday’s storms.
The home that sustained the most damage in Edmond is just northeast of 33rd St. and Bryant.
That home lost most of its roof.
The owner of that home rode the storm out with his wife under their steps.
The good news Edmond police said no one in the city reported any major injuries.
“I think my insurance company better get out here,” said Roland Dawson. “I got a roof on this side and that side but the middle of it is just gone.”
Many more homes in Edmond remain without power.
No word when those homes will get their lights turned back on.
