Thunderstorms turned into funnel clouds, then dropped down on the north Tulsa County landscape on Wednesday evening.

And Osage SkyNews6 HD was there to catch them as they developed in front of the setting sun.

The first touch down was in north Tulsa near Mohawk Park, and it stayed on the ground several minutes. A second, just minutes later, dropped down near a residential area in Owasso.

There is large tree damage and homes that are flattened in Owasso's Stone Canyon neighborhood.

One family says they are lucky to be alive after a tree fell on the vehicle they were in as the tornado hit. Another family found a street sign in their yard that was uprooted from a mile away.

One resident told us it was surreal as his family hunkered down in their above-ground safe room and listened as their roof began to be torn apart.

"It's always been someone else," he said. "It's always been someone else. ... we came out and it looked like a different world."

We were able to catch aerial video you only can see on News On 6. Click the attached video for a view of the Owasso tornado.
