Variety of bad weather hits Oklahoma

The Associated Press - May 1, 2017 11:19 am

SALLISAW, Okla. (AP) – Severe storms brought a possible tornado and flooding to eastern Oklahoma and more than a foot of snow to the Oklahoma Panhandle.
Oklahoma Department of Emergency Services spokeswoman Keli Cain said Sunday that a tornado was reported near Sallisaw in eastern Oklahoma and flooding is reported in the area, while about 15 inches of snow is reported in Cimarron County in the Panhandle.
Cain said three minor injuries were reported.
Flooding was reported Sunday along the Illinois River in northeastern Oklahoma and many roads were closed while roads were also closed in the Panhandle because of the snow.
Oklahoma Gas & Electric and Public Service Company of Oklahoma reported about 1,800 power outages, nearly half of those in Oklahoma City where winds toppled a 70-foot arch at the state fairgrounds.
