Authorities say at least seven people are injured after severe storms spawned multiple tornado touchdowns in northeastern Oklahoma, damaging homes and businesses.

National Weather Service meteorologist Amy Jankowski says a tornado touched down and lifted up numerous times Wednesday night as it swept through the northern Tulsa and Owasso areas.

Tulsa Fire Department spokesman Stan May says about one square mile of a mostly residential area sustained damage. He says one home was destroyed.

Homes were also damaged in nearby Owasso.

There were no immediate reports of anyone missing.
