Craig/ Ottawa/ Newton MO/ Barry MO 9.2 NNW Welch - Picher - Quapaw - 3 NE Peoria - Granby MO - Newtonia MO - 3.9 NNE Fairview MO - Purdy MO - 0.2 WSW McDowell MO

This tornado developed at 4:20 pm CST in northeastern Craig County and continued into Ottawa County. The tornado moved rapidly eastward toward the town of Picher, OK where it destroyed about 200 homes, killed six people, and injured another 150 people at about 540 pm. Damage in and around Picher was rated EF-4 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale.

The tornado began moving more southeasterly near Picher and struck the north side of Quapaw, OK. While this tornado was beginning to weaken east of Quapaw, the supercell produced another tornado a few miles east-northeast of Quapaw that merged with this tornado just east of U.S. Interstate Highway 44. After the merger of the two tornadoes, a single tornadic circulation re-intensified and became about a mile wide for several miles before moving into Newton County, MO.

The EF-4 tornado crossed into Missouri just north of Iris Road, and tracked east southeast all the way across Newton County to just north of Fairview, MO. Several people were killed in automobiles, including a firefighter who was storm spotting, as the tornado briefly reached EF-4 intensity near the intersection of MO State Highway 43 and Iris Road. One vehicle at this location was thrown 5/8s of a mile.

The tornado then extended to a mile wide and EF-3 intensity as it tracked across the intersection of Highway 86 and BB. Many of the 14 fatalities and 200 injuries occurred from just west of MO State Highway 43 to MO State Highway 86. The communities of Granby, MO and Newtonia, MO were also directly impacted from this tornado.

The tornado weakened to EF-2 intensity as it tracked across much of Barry County, but it remained deadly as it directly impacted the community of Purdy, MO. One man was killed as he was taking shelter in a mobile home. Numerous structures, trees, and power poles were destroyed. Damage was estimated at $15.6 million in Oklahoma and $60.6 million in Missouri. This was the first EF-4 tornado to occur in Oklahoma since the Enhanced Fujita Scale was adopted by the National Weather Service in 2007.

  05/01/2012 0030-0032 1 150 EF2 0 1 Craig 1 N - 2 NE Welch

Thunderstorms developed over far northeast Oklahoma, in the vicinity of a warm front and an outflow boundary from earlier thunderstorms. Large hail, damaging winds, several tornadoes and flash flooding were observed with these thunderstorms. This event began during the evening hours of April 30th and continued into the early morning hours of May 1st.

This tornado tore the roof off of a permanent home, shifted another permanent home off its foundation and blew out an exterior wall, turned over an outbuilding, rolled two horse trailers, destroyed a 40' by 60' steel-framed barn, and snapped or uprooted a number of hardwood trees.

  04/02/2015 2059-2119 12 800 EF1 0 1 Craig/ Ottawa/ Delaware 5.5 NE Vinita - 3.5 NE Bernice

Severe thunderstorms developed during the evening of the April 2nd near a stationary frontal boundary that extended across northeastern Oklahoma and southeastern Kansas. A very unstable air mass over the region coupled with strong vertical wind shear resulted in some supercell thunderstorm structures. The storms produced hail up to golfball size, wind gusts of up to 80 mph, and a damaging tornado.

In Craig County, the tornado first damaged barns and trees at the S 440 Road. It moved east-southeast snapping or uprooting trees and damaging barns and outbuildings along the E 200 Road, the S 440 Road, and the E 230 Road before crossing U.S. Interstate Highway I-44, where it blew over two tractor trailers, injuring the driver of one of them. Based on this damage, maximum estimated wind in this segment of the tornado was 95 to 105 mph. The tornado continued into Ottawa County, Oklahoma.

In Ottawa County, the tornado moved through open country and then crossed Highway 60 where it threw several round hay bales. It destroyed barns and outbuildings, damaged several homes, and snapped or uprooted numerous trees as it crossed the S 510 Road and S 520 Road. Based on this damage, maximum estimated wind in this segment of the tornado was 95 to 105 mph.

The tornado crossed into Delaware County near the S 520 Road. Trees were snapped or uprooted, barns and outbuildings were damaged, and homes were damaged as it approached the north end of Grand Lake from the west-northwest. It destroyed a private boat dock on the lake then moved through a community of houses to the east of the lake, resulting in damage to the roofs of homes as well as tree damage.
