Garrett’s Blog: 3 Tornadoes Identified; EF Ratings Expected Wednesday Evening

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The NWS has identified 3 tornado tracks but the details on: Intensity, Path, Duration, & Width are still being assessed.

A report on the EF Rating is still pending. When I spoke with NWS Tulsa this afternoon told me the preliminary findings may be released this evening (Wednesday). The storm survey is being conducted in a rural area of SE Oklahoma.

It’s possible 2 additional tracks may be identified S of Talihina and still another in the Albion, OK area.

The storm survey team uses radar data, GPS coordinates, & public photos to complete their assessment. In rural areas, reports take longer than usual due to some tornado tracks inaccessible by vehicle. Here is a link to our neighboring NWS Office in Little Rock about how assessments are carried out. NWS Damage.

The 3 known so far are:
– 6 NE Fanshawe
– 2 W Poteau
– 4 E Whitesboro

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
