Tornadoes Hit Oklahoma Hard
Wednesday evening was a rough one for our neighbors in Oklahoma. Yet again, residents in Moore, just south of Oklahoma City, watched as a twister tore through the central part of their town. Moore has been the target of multiple tornadoes over the past several years. The Oklahoma City metro area averages about one tornado per year.
Homes and vehicles were severely damaged in Sand Springs and Mannford, according to reports from KJRH-TV. The tornado that struck Tulsa caused a building to collapse. One death was also reported at a mobile home park with the Tulsa tornado.
Natural gas leaks and numerous homes were damaged in Moore, according to Oklahoma's News 9. A gymnastics building in Sand Springs was destroyed by a tornado, Oklahoma's News 6 reported. Sixty people were inside at the time. All sixty escaped with no serious injuries.
