Marking the first strike of severe weather for the month of March, multiple tornadoes swept across Oklahoma and Arkansas on Wednesday night. There were seven tornado reports out of these areas, according to the Storm Prediction Center.
One person was killed after a tornado battered a mobile home park in Sand Springs, Oklahoma.
Minor injuries were reported across Moore, Oklahoma, after the town yet again stood in the path of a dangerous system. Structural damage was reported throughout the town. Moore was devastated by an EF5 tornado in May of 2013, and before that tornadoes struck the town in 2010, 2003, 1999 and 1998.
Damage and power outages at local schools forced district-wide cancellations across Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Moore. As the storm barreled through the region, tens of thousand were without power across Oklahoma and Arkansas. Some were still without power on Thursday morning as crews worked in damaged areas.
