Tornadoes reported in southeastern Oklahoma

Updated:
Another round of stormy weather rolls through eastern Oklahoma, this time, most of the severe weather was south of I-40.

The storms packed quite a punch, knocking over trees and leaving thousands without power. High winds and hail caused most of the damage Tuesday during another round of storms.

In the McAlester area, a wall cloud moved across the area. A funnel was seen dipping down from the cloud formation, but it did not touch the ground. There are reports of power outages, flooding and plenty of trees knocked down.

Farther south and to the west, a small tornado was observed by a weather spotter near Stringtown. It didn't cause any damage.

In all, three tornadoes were reported as severe storms moved across southeastern parts of Oklahoma Tuesday, but with no apparent severe damage or injuries.

The National Weather Service received reports of a tornado touching down near Olney in Coal County around 7 PM. Several roads around Coalgate were flooded and power lines and trees were also downed.

Two other tornadoes were reported moments apart near Stringtown in neighboring Atoka County. A storm spotter reported seeing tornadoes at 8:02 PM and again two minutes later. Power lines and trees were also downed in Atoka County.

Hail as large as baseballs was also reported with the storms.
