Thunderstorms developed early in the afternoon of February 10, 2009 from near the Lawton area, northeast toward the Oklahoma metro area. Thunderstorms became severe relatively quickly as they moved through Caddo and Grady counties, and began to show signs of rotation as they moved toward western Oklahoma City. One supercell thunderstorm spawned several tornadoes as it moved northeast through central Oklahoma. Sporadic damage was reported alongthe storm's path, with some of the damage being significant as the supercell moved through northern Oklahoma county and southern Logan county. Other supercells developed near the same areas of Caddo and Grady Counties and also moved northeast. Some locations received several rounds of very large hail through the afternoon.
