The National Weather Service says three tornadoes struck northeast Oklahoma, including an EF2 twister that caused heavy damage and injured at least 30 people near midtown Tulsa.

Meteorologist Bart Haake said Monday that the Tulsa tornado touched down at 1:19 a.m. Sunday. Eight minutes later an EF1 tornado struck the southeast Tulsa suburb of Broken Arrow and an EF1 tornado then touched down five minutes after that near Oologah, about 20 miles  northeast of Tulsa.

Haake said the Tulsa tornado had wind speeds of 120-130 mph while the others had winds of 90-100 mph.

St. Francis Hospital spokeswoman Lauren Landwerlin says about 30 people were treated at the hospital, including three in “non-critical” condition.

Ten businesses in a shopping district of Tulsa were so badly damaged by a tornado that they have been condemned, including TGI Fridays and Whataburger restaurants where several people were injured, according to reports.

Notices were posted by city inspectors prohibiting 10 commercial structures located in the Highland Plaza district from being occupied or used following the tornado early on Sunday morning, just hours after many had closed in the busy midtown area. The businesses are AT&T and Woodcraft stores, AspenDental, Panera, CarTec, Whataburger, TGI Fridays, The Flame Broiler, Vintage Stock and H&R Block.


We send our prayers to the people in Oklahoma.

God Bless.
