Severe storms produced multiple tornadoes across Oklahoma, Nebraska, Iowa and Ilionis on May 9, 2016. In Oklahoma, the storms killed at least 2 people.

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. Most of the damage was located in the area of Elmore City, Katie and Wynnewood," News 9 reports.
