Severe storms rolled into Green Country Friday night leaving behind damage and disrupting holiday events and high school football games.

We’re following multiple tornado sightings and confirmed damage tonight across eastern Oklahoma, as a fast-moving storm line swept most of the state.

Lasting most of the evening, the storms came on an unseasonably warm day and left damage in their wake. Rare November and December tornado warnings sounded this evening from Tulsa and then south and east to Vian, Gore and Webbers Falls.

The full extent of damage is not known at this hour, but damage has been reported in Tulsa County, in Gore, Cookson, Welling, Chewey and other places.

Blackgum is currently without power and one business has been wiped out, while residents of Hartshorne say a gas station in the area was leveled by high winds.

There have been no reports of any injuries, but property and tree damage from apparent tornado strikes have been reported.

There are also reports of a large tornado on the ground for several miles in the Lake Tenkiller State Park area.

On the Oklahoma-Arkansas border in the city of West Siloam Springs, OK, a Cherokee casino ordered patrons and staff to shelter in place after a tornado was spotted near there.
