Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office: 1 person dead, multiple injuries after tornadoes hit Oklahoma


SAND SPRINGS, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say one person is dead and multiple others are injured after tornadoes hit Oklahoma and Arkansas.

Tulsa County Sheriff’s Capt. Billy McKelvey says a mobile home park near Sand Springs in the Tulsa area was nearly destroyed Wednesday. It’s not clear yet whether it was a tornado or straight-line winds that hit the mobile home park.

McKelvey says one person was killed there. He could not yet say exactly how many others were injured, but he said there were multiple injuries.

Until Tuesday, when a waterspout formed over an Arkansas lake, the U.S. hadn’t had a tornado in more than a month.
