TULSA, Okla. (AP) – The National Weather Service in Tulsa is investigating reports of multiple tornadoes in northeastern Oklahoma and northwestern Arkansas.

Meteorologist Joe Sellers said Wednesday there were several reports of weak twisters in Rogers, Sequoyah and Wagoner counties in Oklahoma and Franklin County in Arkansas. Sellers said an investigator was working Wednesday to confirm the reports, determine the amount of damage and rate the possible tornadoes.

Sellers said early indications are that damage is minor with tree limbs downed and shingles blown off roofs. There have been no reports of injuries.

Severe thunderstorms with strong winds also rolled through central Oklahoma on Tuesday, flipping parked vehicles and causing more than 3,000 power outages.
