Severe weather raced through Wagoner County late Thursday, May 18, with damage reported in both Wagoner and Porter that could possibly have been caused by tornadoes.
In Wagoner, the awning over diesel pumps at Speedy's 66 Convenience Store suffered substantial damage, however no one was injured. The store is located just north of Highway 51 on U.S. Hwy. 69.
Southeast of that same intersection, roof damage was reported at Orschln Farm and Home.
News on 6 storm tracker Darren Stephens of Haskell reported winds of at least 100 miles per hour in Wagoner.
In the neighborhood just west of Walmart, high winds displaced outdoor items from several residential properties and downed at least one power line on Susan Ave.
Wagoner Police Chief Bob Haley said there were downed lines in other areas of town, but no other major damage had been reported.
Emergency services personnel patrolled neighborhoods to check for potentially dangerous situations.
Much of the community was in the dark with no power after midnight.
