ELMORE CITY, Okla. – Several residents in southern Oklahoma suffered property damage when severe storms moved through the area on Monday afternoon.
Around 3 p.m., storms started to form in southern parts of the state.
Heavy rain and hail were reported across central Oklahoma, but severe weather was centered south of the metro.
A large tornado was captured in Garvin County, near Elmore City.
Garvin County Sheriff Larry Rhodes says an elderly man was killed in his home in Garvin County.
Also, officials say five to 10 homes were either damaged or destroyed in a two-mile stretch.
Emergency officials in Johnston County say another person was also killed by a storm in that area.
