Tornadoes form in Western Oklahoma, several Tornado Warnings issued throughout the evening

Local

WESTERN OKLAHOMA (KFOR) – KFOR Chief Meteorologist Mike Morgan confirmed that two super cell storms produced multiple tornadoes in Western Oklahoma on Tuesday evening.

Mike says tornadoes formed both east of Snyder, located in Kiowa County, and North of Clinton, located in Custer County.

KFOR’s Marc Dillard was on the road between Cash and Snyder, tracking a tornado. An image of that tornado appears below:

Mike described that tornado as a cone-shaped tornado that became a multi-vortex tornado by the small town of Odetta. He said that tornado was around 8:15 p.m.

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol official told KFOR that they’ve had only one emergency situation related to the tornadic weather – a semi-truck rollover on Interstate 40 West at mile marker 62. The official said lanes are blocked, and Oklahoma Department of Transportation personnel are on the way to the scene to help get the semi out of the ditch.

A Custer County Sheriff’s Office official told KFOR that an airport east of Clinton was damaged. However, details on the damage were not provided.

Tornado Warnings were issued across Western and Southwestern Oklahoma throughout the evening.

A Tornado Warning is in effect in Beaver and Texas counties until 10:15 p.m. A Tornado Warning was in effect in Caddo, Kiowa, Comanche and Washita counties until 9:45 p.m.

Mike said we can write off a super cell that was forming near Blaine County. He said it has weakened significantly. However, he said the super cell in the areas of Caddo and Comanche counties remains a trouble spot.

“Otherwise we’re in good shape. It will keep chugging on off to the northeast; it will keep spinning for a while, but a Tornado Warning does continue on it, but it will probably just slowly, gradually spin down as we head toward Oklahoma County,” Mike said.

The 4 Warn Forecast for the rest of the week appears below:
