National Weather Service officials say they have found damage indicating an EF-1 tornado hit LeFlore County, Oklahoma, on Sunday.

The damage was discovered during a survey two miles northeast of Octavia, according to the National Weather Service.

The news comes as victims of Sunday’s tornado in the Vilonia area wait to see how much damage it caused. A tornado that killed a man in Quapaw was classified earlier this week as an EF-2.

The Enhanced Fujita Scale rates tornadoes on a scale of 0 to 5, with 5 being the worst. An EF-1 tornado’s winds can reach 110 miles per hour, according to the National Weather Service.
