Tornadoes Touch Down Near Woodward

KSCB News - April 10, 2012 8:01 am

At least two tornadoes have touched down
and hail the size of softballs pounded northwestern Oklahoma,
injuring two people and damaging a county jail and numerous
vehicles.
The National Weather Service says one tornado was spotted about
3 miles south-southwest of Woodward about 5:30 p.m. Monday. Another
tornado was spotted east of Sharon.
In Woodward, hail up to 4.25 inches broke vehicle windows and
damaged roofs.
Woodward County Emergency Management Director Matt Lehenbauer
says an infant was cut by glass when hail knocked out windows in
its parents’ vehicle. Lehenbauer says he didn’t believe the baby
was seriously hurt.
Sheriff Gary Stanley says hail broke every skylight in the jail
and one hail stone cut an inmate on the back.
Stanley says the hail damage caused the roof to leak.
