May 10 Tornado Outbreak

A severe weather outbreak occurred across Oklahoma as tornadic storms formed along a line from north to south Monday afternoon through the evening. An exciting yet devastating event. The first tornado warning was put out mid-afternoon north-west of the site I work at (multi-vortex tornado pictured near Wakita). The second tornado warning was released just south of the site near Billings (#2) at about the same time I was driving that way back home after work. Just off the exit on I-35 I drove past an overturned FedEx truck and golf ball to baseball size hail. The Norman tornado (track 6) was likely the largest of yesterday's, followed a path over highway 9 just a few miles east of the OU campus and the National Weather Center.
