Storm knocks out power, spawns tornado in central Oklahoma


August 28, 2019

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A storm spawned a weak tornado in central Oklahoma, left thousands without power from that state into Arkansas, and led to about a dozen high-water rescues.

National Weather Service meteorologist Phil Ware said Tuesday that an EF1 tornado damaged a home, downed trees and destroyed a barn Monday night in Logan County, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of downtown Oklahoma City.

No injuries were reported.

Oklahoma City Fire Capt. David Macy said firefighters rescued about a dozen motorists from high water and a fisherman who was trapped by rising water on a lake.
