Severe Weather Leaves Damage in Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY  -- Severe storms have caused some damage and spawned some tornadoes in Oklahoma.

The National Weather Service says there two reports of tornadoes in Grant County, one near Medford and another southwest of Wakita. Tornado warnings also have been issued for the Oklahoma City metro area, where television footage showed a tornado near Yukon Monday afternoon.

In northwestern Oklahoma, at least one person sustained minor injuries, one home was destroyed and two more damaged when a tornado moved through Grant County near the Kansas border.
Grant County Emergency Management Director Max Hess says one man scraped his elbow when winds knocked him down as he was trying to get to his cellar. 

Hess also says numerous power poles have been knocked down along Oklahoma 11 and baseball-sized hail knocked out windows in county equipment and poked a hole through a county building roof.
