A large and extremely dangerous tornado touched down near Wynnewood, south of Oklahoma City, killing an elderly man in his home.

"News 9 Chief Meteorologist David Payne estimates the tornado to be at least an EF-2, or possibly a low end EF-3. Hail the size of tennis balls have also been confirmed. Multiple homes and structures were damaged or destroyed by the tornado, including some mobile homes and barns.
