ENID, Okla. (AP) - Enid High School leaders have begun scouting out new places to hold graduation after a tornado damaged the city's expo center and rendered it unusable.

Insurance adjusters visited the Chisholm Trail Expo Center on Monday to start gathering information for an estimate, but it was too early to put a dollar figure on the amount of damage done.

No major events were planned for the expo center until the high school graduation on May 21. Spokeswoman Amber Graham Fitzgerald says a baseball and football stadium are among venues the high school is considering as its new graduation site.

Damage was also done to a shooting range and several homes in Garfield County, where Emergency Manager Mike Honigsberg thought as many as five tornadoes may have touched down late Saturday night.
