Severe thunderstorms developed along and ahead of a dry line over central Oklahoma during the afternoon hours. Very unstable air along with very strong low-level wind shear resulted in a number of supercell thunderstorms. These storms produced numerous tornadoes, very large hail, and damaging wind gusts as they moved eastward across eastern Oklahoma during the evening hours.

A tornado developed northwest of Webbers Falls, moved east-northeast, snapping or uprooting numerous trees. The tornado overturned several campers and recreational vehicles at Brewer Bend Campground where three people were injured. The estimated peak wind in the tornado based on this damage was 110 mph. The tornado continued into Sequoyah County.

In Sequoyah County, the tornado damaged docks on Tenkiller Lake, damaged several homes, snapped or uprooted numerous trees, and blew down power poles. The estimated peak wind in the tornado based on this damage was 110 mph.

  05/15/2020 0838-0849 4.8 525 EF1 0 1 Muskogee 1.6 NNW - 4.7 ENE Keefeton

Thunderstorms developed into eastern Oklahoma during the morning of May 15th. The strongest storms produced damaging wind and a tornado across northeastern Oklahoma. Very moist air across the region, combined with slow storm motion, resulted in locally heavy rainfall and flash flooding. The storms developed slowly southward during the day, with intensification noted as they moved into southeastern Oklahoma, which had become quite unstable by early afternoon. Damaging wind occurred with strongest storms.

This tornado developed along Elm Grove Road, west of S 25th Street E, where outbuildings were damaged, and trees were uprooted. It moved eastward damaging or destroying about sixteen homes, destroying a number of outbuildings, uprooting numerous trees, and snapping numerous power poles until it dissipated just east of the Muskogee Turnpike. Based on this damage, maximum estimated wind in the tornado was 100 to 110 mph.
