UNDATED -- A tornado touched down briefly just north of Bartlesville Saturday evening.

Video from News On 6 Storm Chasers showed a large debris cloud forming around the tornado, but the storm appeared to avoid any populated areas.

Sirens were going off in the community of Copan and surrounding areas.

The electrically active storm is moving in a south-east direction at 20-25 miles per hour.

Track the storm

The combination of heat and humidity along with a weak boundary in the area are producing at least a few of the storms and should be pretty much out of the area by early morning.

That will leave us with another hot, humid day for Sunday but the surface boundary is expected to have shifted further northward by afternoon.
