Tornadoes Touchdown Near Waynoka, OK
“SkyNews9 and News 9 StormTrackers spotted a huge rotating wall cloud Saturday evening that spawned two vortexes in northwestern Oklahoma.
The twin tornadoes formed just after 7 p.m. and ripped across a rural area near Bouse Junction, just southeast of Waynoka. The tornadoes kicked up a lot of debris in the area. It may have also hit an oil tank battery and sparked a large fire.
There were also reports of power lines down east of Waynoka.
Emergency Management Director Matt Lehenbauer said Saturday the storm near Woodward damaged a metal outbuilding and a camper, but no injuries were reported.
In Woods County, a tornado was confirmed 4 miles northwest of Freedom. Emergency Management Director Steve Foster said he hadn’t received any injury or damage reports.
Officials were concerned about the more than 5,000 people attending a rattlesnake hunt at Little Sahara State Park in Woods County, but Foster said most were evacuated and others took shelter at the park.”
