Widespread Showers in the Mid-Atlantic

Widespread showers and some thunderstorms from Ian may produce isolated flash flooding in the central Appalachians into the Mid-Atlantic and southern New England through the weekend. Hazardous conditions persist along portions of the East coast. Showers, thunderstorms, and high elevation snow are possible across the Central/Southern Rockies and into the Great Basin. Read More >

F-Scale Killed Injured County Location
  04/02/1957 2100 23 880 F2 0 2 Latimer/ Haskell Bengal - Salonia - Red Oak - McCurtain

This tornado moved northward from near Bengal to 0.5 miles east of Red Oak in Latimer County to McCurtain in Haskell County. Many homes and outbuildings were destroyed or damaged in the Bengal, Salonia, and Red Oak communities. Two injuries resulted at McCurtain when the tornado hit the town at 9:40 pm CST, and 26 homes and at least 6 barns were destroyed or damaged. Large hail was reported along the damage path of the tornado, and hailstones up to 1.25 inches in diameter fell over two sections near Keota in Haskell County. One unusual aspect of this storm was the continuous and brilliant lightning that occurred all along the path of the tornado.

  05/05/1960 1910 62 200 F4 16 106 Latimer/ Haskell/ Sequoyah Wilburton - Keota - SW of Sallisaw

This tornado touched down at 7:10 pm CST in the Bandy Creek valley just south of Wilburton, OK, and then swept through the city of Wilburton. An area 1 to 2 blocks wide was completely destroyed in Wilburton, and the path through the city measured 3 miles in length. Thirteen people were killed and another 100 persons were injured in the city. Five people died and scores were injured in the little Calvary Baptist Church where 57 members had gathered there for a church supper honoring students from the Eastern A&M College in Wilburton.

A total of 600 buildings were damaged or destroyed. One business block was destroyed, 82 homes were destroyed, and another 156 homes were damaged. Damage in Wilburton was estimated at $1.5 million. Hail larger than hen eggs fell ahead of the tornado and produced $200,000 in damages.

At 7:15 pm CST, 6 houses were destroyed at Center Point, OK, 3 miles north of Wilburton. The tornado then skipped northeastward and the next evidence of damage was found at Keota, OK, where 3 people were killed, 6 persons injured, and 24 homes and buildings were destroyed. Damage in the Keota totaled $250,000. Hail up to 5 inches in diameter along with rainfall totals of 5 inches caused considerable crop damage. The last evidence of tornadic damage was southwest of Sallisaw, OK where 10 houses were destroyed, but no deaths or injuries were reported. This was probably a family of tornadoes produced by one parent supercell thunderstorm instead of a single, long-track tornado.

  06/16/1973 1730 31 100 F1 0 2 Pittsburg/ Haskell 6 N McAlester - near Hoyt

A tornado first touched down 6 miles north of McAlester in Pittsburg County between U.S. Highway 69 and OK State Highway 113. At this location, 2 mobile homes were damaged and 2 teen-age girls received minor injuries. The tornado moved to the northeast at 30 mph, and intermittently struck the ground. It moved across Lake Eufaula near Arrowhead Lodge and caused about $1,000 in damages to boat docks. The tornado continued northeastward and produced damage near Hoyt in Haskell County where a roof was removed from a house.

  05/16/2003 1422-1426 2 40 F0 0 1 Haskell 2.2 N - 3.8 NE Stigler

An F0 tornado touched down just north of Stigler and traveled two miles east-northeast before dissipating. One mobile home was destroyed and several trees were damaged. The person who was in the mobile home was injured.
