OSAGE COUNTY, Okla. (KTUL) -- People in Fairfax are beginning to cleanup the damage from Sunday's tornado.

The small Osage County town was out of power until early Monday morning. The fire chief says crews rescued one person after the storm but no one was injured. The twister damaged roofs, downed trees and tossed debris across town.

Cleanup began as soon as the sun came up and will likely take several days to complete.

The National Weather Service storm survey team has determined it was a high-end EF-0 tornado after assessing the damage.

Osage County Emergency Management confirms a tornado hit Fairfax Sunday with wind speeds between 90 and 100 mph.
