Oklahoma residents faced severe weather conditions on Sunday night as a weather system produced brief tornadoes and high-speed winds, causing damage to homes and property in several areas of the state. The tornado outbreak was particularly severe, with winds reaching 70-80 mph and the possibility of speeds beyond 100 mph.
At around 7:45 p.m., a tornado was confirmed just northwest of Hobart, causing significant damage to properties in the area. Reports indicate that there has been damage in Cheyenne as well.
News 9 Storm Trackers Val and Amy Castor tracked a tornado near Union City, while a tornado caused structural damage on the southeast side of Norman later in the evening, near Southeast 24th Avenue Southeast and East Imhoff Road.
The severity of the tornadoes underscores the importance of taking safety precautions and being prepared for severe weather conditions. Storm shelters can be a vital safety measure, providing protection for you and your family during a tornado or other severe weather event.
A well-constructed storm shelter should be able to withstand the high-speed winds and flying debris that can cause significant damage to homes and buildings. There are different types of storm shelters to choose from, including in-ground and above ground. In-ground shelters are installed in the ground and provide a safe, secure space during severe weather conditions. Above-ground shelters are installed outside of the home on top of the ground and are designed to withstand extreme winds and flying debris.
Regardless of the type of storm shelter you choose, it is important to ensure that it is installed correctly and meets all safety standards. All storm shelters installed by Sprague’s Backhoe meet and exceed FEMA guidelines.
In addition to storm shelters, there are other safety measures that homeowners can take to prepare for severe weather events. This includes having a plan in place for evacuation, preparing an emergency kit with essential supplies, and staying informed about weather conditions and alerts.
