A tornado warning was issued by the National Weather Service just before 9 p.m. as the storm race across the southeastern portion of Logan County. There were no reports of any touchdowns as the warning expired after 30 minutes.

With no funnels spotted, high winds is believed to be the cause for several trees to be lifted out of the ground and onto county roadways and structures.

Perhaps, leaving the biggest impact came at the Coyle High School show barn. A large tree was uprooted and landed on the agriculture building.

According to District 2 County Commissioner Mike Pearson, a garage was heavily damaged at Choctaw and Simmons. Trees were found blocking roads at Charter Oak between Luther and Peebly and on Charter Oak between Harrah and Pottawatomie roads.
