Local Weather History For April 8th...
Damaging severe weather was seen across far northern Oklahoma on this
date back in 2011. Numerous supercell thunderstorms produced hail the
size of golf balls to baseballs from Cherokee, eastward toward
Medford, Billings, Enid, and Ponca City. A particularly strong
supercell produced a measured 94 mph wind gust at the Ponca City
airport. This resulted in significant damage to numerous buildings on
and near the airport grounds.
