Multiple tornadoes barreled through Oklahoma on Monday, when 12 counties in the state were under a warning related to the severe weather.
A tornado watch was in effect though 9 p.m. local time in east-central Oklahoma, the National Weather Service said.
“You are in a life-threatening situation,” the service warned. “Flying debris may be deadly to those caught without shelter. Mobile homes will be destroyed.”
Multiple tornados were reported in multiple locations, according to the weather service station in Norman, Oklahoma.
Hail up to golf-ball size and winds of up to 70 mph were of concern, the weather service said.
KTLA’s sister station KFOR in Oklahoma City is providing live coverage.
A storm chaser with Oklahoma City station KOCO recorded video of a tornado blowing past his truck, apparently within a half-mile, in the area of Wynnewood. The twister appeared to have destroyed a house, storm chaser Chris Sanner said.
