Authorities say at least seven people were injured - one critically - after severe storms spawned multiple tornado touchdowns in northeastern Oklahoma Wednesday, damaging homes and businesses.

Troopers say a 14-year-old girl is stable after a tornado caused a tree to fall on an SUV she was riding in at 56th Street North near Yale. A man and two kids, including an 11 month old, were treated at the hospital.

Our WARN team said the damage was likely caused by one supercell. It packed wind speeds of more than 100 miles an hour.
