A line of storms formed late Monday afternoon and rolled across northeastern Oklahoma, setting off warning sirens as they moved to the northeast. Several funnels were sighted, but it will be Tuesday before the experts will be able to say whether any of them touched ground.

There was plenty of other wind damage, however, and east central Tulsa suffered the brunt of that. Several thousand PSO customers in Tulsa were still without power late Monday, and the storms left their marks elsewhere.

The Rogers County Sheriff's Office reported property damage near Will Rogers Downs on Hwy. 20. Broken Arrow police reported roof damage to a residence on Main Street.
Lighting struck a tank battery in southeastern Creek County, south of Sapulpa, igniting a spectacular fire.

Claremore police reported widespread power outages and there were reports of flash flooding and pea to marble size hail in Coweta. The storms were in advance of a significant cold front that left needed rain.
