Devastating tornado hits Norman, Oklahoma

Early Monday morning, February 27th, the Storm Prediction Center reported more than 100 storm reports for parts of Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas.

There are currently 87 reports of high winds, 13 hail storm reports, and two active tornadoes. One of the tornadoes running over Oklahoma will likely increase the number of storm forecasts.

The storms have caused several power lines to go down in Oklahoma City, leaving more than 75,000 customers across the state without power.

In Shawnee, Oklahoma, a patch of at least 5 kilometers has been observed with damage following severe weather in the area. On the other hand, tornadoes have caused multiple power outages and downed power lines, confirmed Chad Larman, director of the Pottawatomie County Department of Emergency Management.

For its part, the Norman Police Department reported that there are currently multiple roads closed to traffic, due to downed power lines and debris that go from the south to the east of Norman County, Oklahoma.

The Department is expected to release a list of impacts soon, though the first message asks its residents to avoid the area if possible.
