There is a lot of damage Tuesday morning after a possible tornado touched down overnight in Osage County.

The National Weather Service will be sending a team to that area later on Tuesday to determine the strength of the storm. The Osage County Sheriff said that several roads are closed due to damage, so residents need to be aware of where they are going.

Barnsdall Public Schools said there will be no classes on Tuesday, April 2 due to the school and many homes having no power.
