TULSA, Oklahoma -- People across Eastern Oklahoma have posted fascinating stories about how they rode out Thursday's storms, on the News On 6 Facebook page.

Fern Smith Armstrong was camping at a state park in Okmulgee County when the storms hit, forcing her group to seek shelter in a restroom.

"We are camping at Okmulgee State Park with our Gold Wing friends! Stayed in concrete restroom and watched it go over or so we thought! Got back to our campers and got hit by hail rain & wind! Hey we survived," wrote Armstrong.

Debbie Stevens-Paulsen in Collinsville told us about how her fiancé reacted to his first Oklahoma severe storm.

"This was my fiancé's first OK storm. He's from Alaska. He thought it was very cool and exciting, just like I thought earthquakes and icicles in my nose were pretty cool while I was up there in Anchorage with him," Debbie Stevens-Paulsen wrote.

A Kiefer viewer rode out the storms in her cellar.

"Went in the cellar the first go round in Kiefer. I think the second storm was worse than the first though as far as wind and hail," said Ashley Jones.

Many more, like Dave Hardin, told us how thankful they were for's live streaming of the WARN team coverage.

"Fascinating and part of what made them so was KOTV's live streaming video and chat. It was so cool to hear from people at specific locations tell exactly what they were seeing, and I also was very happy to be part of a group," said Dave Hardin.

Cindy Bullis-Long said, "My heart goes out to Tushka travel through their town a lot going to our home in Texas.  My little one is sick in the hospital so we were in the basement at the Childrens hospital at St. Francis, watched News On 6 the whole time it was nice to see actual coverage instead a just computer images thru your broadcast.  Kudos to News On 6!"

Several mentioned that the storms knocked out their satellite television service and was the only way they were getting up-to-the-minute information about the situation.
