Tornado Touches Down In Western Oklahoma
03/09/2010

Authorities say at least five homes have been destroyed and other structures damaged by a tornado in western Oklahoma.

Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management spokeswoman Michelann Ooten says there were no reports of any injuries with the storm, which was first spotted about 5:15 p.m. Monday.

Ooten says the county barn on the south side of Hammon was destroyed, and the roofs of several houses were blown off. She also says power lines were down in the area.

The storm touched down near Elk City, about 110 miles west of Oklahoma City, then traveled across open countryside before reaching Hammon.

Allene Bottom lives on a farm near Hammon and watched the storm as it approached. Bottom says law enforcement officers were stopping people from coming into the town.
