Wild weather blew through Oklahoma Monday night. This time it was wind and rain rather than ice that has left residents working to regroup. The News On 6's Margaret Stokes reports Cherokee County sustained some damage.

Tornado sirens sounded as residents braced for possible tornadoes, but wound up with heavy hail, relentless rain, and high winds.

"My granddaughter called and she said you got fifteen circles over your head," said Shirley Hays of Peggs.

Along Lost City Road in Peggs, evidence of the storm lingered into the morning hours where some residents were unable to drive through rushing water.

"I think they've had over six inches of rain up in this area. It's washed out pretty bad all the way up this road here," said James Secrat with Cherokee County.

County workers like James Secrat worked for most of the day to clear low lying roads. The storm was strong enough to break up pieces of asphalt.

Tahlequah was also a hard hit area where hail damage is evident, and high winds blew down a number of utility poles. Gerald Haddock was forced to close shop, as he worked to repair damage caused by what he says was baseball size hail.

"I'll probably be back up for business tomorrow. For today it looks like it's just kinda trying to pick up the pieces," said businessman Gerald Haddock.

The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office confirmed residents were forced to evacuate one trailer home in the northern part of the county along highway 82-A. No one involved was injured.

Property damage was also reported from the hail and high winds in other parts of the state.
