  03/12/2006 2109-2142 29 440 F3 0 8 Cherokee/ Delaware 1 N Peggs - 4 NE Colcord

Thunderstorms developed ahead of a dry line late in the afternoon on March 12th. The atmosphere ahead of the dry line was highly unstable and had strong low level wind shear. The combination of the instability and wind shear promoted the development of supercell thunderstorms, which moved east-northeast across northeastern Oklahoma and northwestern Arkansas during the evening. The southernmost supercell produced four tornadoes. The tornadoes were on the ground for a combined 65 miles.

This tornado touched down in northwestern Cherokee County and moved east-northeast producing up to F1 damage in the county as assessed by a survey team. In Cherokee County, several homes received minor damage, outbuildings were destroyed, power lines were downed, and numerous trees were snapped or uprooted.

The tornado continued into southern Delaware County. Damage suggested the tornado widened and strengthened as it moved through southern Delaware County reaching a maximum width of around 1/4 of a mile. The tornado damaged 95 homes, destroying 42 of those homes. Five businesses were also damaged. Numerous trees were snapped or uprooted and about 100 power poles were downed, which resulted in more than 5000 people losing power as a result of the storm. The worst damage from this tornado was found from near Twin Oaks to about 4 miles west-southwest of Colcord. The tornado injured eight people in Delaware County.

A very moist and very unstable air mass developed across eastern Oklahoma on the afternoon and evening of May 22nd as a dry line moved into the area from the west. Severe thunderstorms, including supercells, developed ahead of the dry line and moved across the area producing tornadoes, large hail up to softball size, and damaging wind gusts.

The tornado developed about 2.5 miles west-southwest of Zena, moved east-northeast across Grand Lake and then south of Zena crossing OK State Highway 59 just north of the intersection with OK State Highway 127. Permanent homes were damaged, barns and outbuildings were destroyed, mobile homes were severely damaged, and large trees were snapped or uprooted. The intensity and width of the tornado increased east of OK State Highway 59 where several permanent homes were severely damaged, two double wide mobile homes were destroyed with only small pieces of debris remaining hundreds of yards from the homesite, and many large trees were snapped or uprooted. This extent of damage continued to the state line where a permanent home was severely damaged, two mobile homes were destroyed, and a steel-framed building was destroyed. Two people were injured in the permanent home. Maximum estimated wind in the tornado based on this damage was about 140 mph.

  11/30/2018 2143-2246 47 1100 EF2 0 5 Sequoyah/ Cherokee/ Adair/ Delaware Blackgum - 2.7 SE Colcord

Thunderstorms developed during the evening hours of the November 30, 2018 across central and eastern Oklahoma. Moderately strong atmospheric instability across the area combined with very strong wind shear to produce organized severe thunderstorms, including supercells. Supercell thunderstorms produced several tornadoes and damaging thunderstorm wind gusts across eastern Oklahoma. One of the tornadoes was strong and exceptionally long-tracked, affecting Sequoyah, Cherokee, Adair, and Delaware Counties. A squall line moved rapidly across the area ahead of the surging cold front and produced additional tornadoes and damaging wind gusts.

This long-track tornado developed near Blackgum in Sequoyah where homes were damaged, barns and outbuildings were destroyed, and trees were snapped. The tornado moved north-northeast, snapping and uprooting numerous trees as it approached an inlet of Lake Tenkiller. Based on this damage, maximum estimated wind in this segment of the tornado was 100 to 110 mph.

The tornado moved into Cherokee County near an inlet of Lake Tenkiller, where boat docks, lake homes, boats, and outbuildings were destroyed, and trees and power poles were snapped. The tornado moved north-northeast along the eastern shores of Lake Tenkiller, passing through Cookson and Cherokee Landing State Park. Numerous homes were damaged or destroyed, numerous boat docks were destroyed, many boats were destroyed, outbuildings were destroyed, many trees and power poles were snapped, and hangars at the airport west of Cookson were destroyed.

  05/20/2019 2129-2156 21 2700 EF2 0 1 Cherokee/ Delaware 4 SW Peggs - 3.5 NW Kansas

A strong, upper-level storm system moved into the Southern Plains from the Rockies on May 20th and 21st. The attendant warm front moved from northern Texas northward into northeastern Oklahoma during the day on May 20th, and then the cold front associated with this storm system moved through eastern Oklahoma during the late evening of May 20th and early morning hours of May 21st. Warm, moist, and very unstable air resided across eastern Oklahoma ahead of this system. This pattern resulted in multiple rounds of severe thunderstorms across eastern Oklahoma from the early afternoon of May 20th through late morning of May 21st. Very strong wind shear coexisting with the strong instability resulted in some supercell thunderstorms that produced large hail up to golfball size and multiple tornadoes on May 20th. A squall line developed along the cold front that moved into the area during the morning of May 21st, and that line of storms produced multiple tornadoes along the leading edge. Locally heavy rainfall and subsequent flash flooding occurred across northeastern Oklahoma as multiple rounds of thunderstorms affected generally the same area.

This large tornado developed southwest of the intersection of the N 420 Road and the W 660 Road. It moved northeast snapping and uprooting trees, and destroying outbuildings when it crossed those roads. Significant tree damage occurred as the tornado crossed the W 650 Road and approached OK State Highway 82, where homes and businesses were severely damaged and numerous trees were snapped in Peggs. After moving through Peggs, the tornado continued to move northeast across mainly rural, rugged terrain where significant tree damage was noted for several miles. It crossed the N 495 Road snapping trees, damaging homes, and destroying outbuildings, and then moved into Delaware County. Based on this damage, maximum estimated wind in this segment of the tornado was 110 to 120 mph.

The tornado moved into the far southwestern portion of Delaware County and moved northeast toward Leach. It damaged homes, destroyed outbuildings, and snapped or uprooted many trees. The tornado crossed the Cherokee Turnpike west of Twin Oaks and dissipated. Based on this damage, maximum estimated wind in this segment of the tornado was 110 to 120 mph.
