Severe thunderstorms move quickly across eastern Oklahoma

Updated:
Severe weather rumbles across eastern Oklahoma Thursday afternoon and evening, bringing wind and rain.

News on 6 WARN team units got a picture of a wall cloud near Wynona in Osage County. Our weather team says the funnel had a very slow rotation, but did not touch the ground.

In the Skiatook area, this funnel cloud was spotted near US Highway 75 and State Highway 20. This storm seemed to be more organized and packed a little more power. Again, the funnel did not touch down.

The severe weather cuts a two mile path of destruction in Broken Arrow. Residents are cleaning up after high winds blew through the city, snapping trees in half. Some homes and property were damaged by the falling branches. The most extensive damage may be at Advantage Auto Repair. The shop's roof was torn off, but Jason Rowe says not much else was damaged. “It just damaged the roof a lot , the roof and that car parked underneath there, but so, but it didn't damage the Subaru at all, kind of flooded this area here, got water all over here.”

There were no reports of injuries or major damage.

And there were other storm problems elsewhere. Strong winds pushed a mobile home off its trailer near Inola along US Highway 412.

Storms Thursday also caused minor damage from McAlester to Bartlesville.
