Oklahoma tornadoes wreak havoc in Barnsdall, Bartlesville: see damage


Just a week after dozens of deadly tornadoes hit Oklahoma, another storm devastated the state Monday, causing wind damage in the Oklahoma City area and significant damage in northeastern Oklahoma.

Multiple tornadoes were seen in northeastern and central Oklahoma, including one in Barnsdall, Oklahoma, a city about 40 miles north of Tulsa, Oklahoma, that left one person dead and several injured, according to KOTV. The tornado’s damaging effects were also seen in Bartlesville, another rural community just north of Tulsa.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported that about 30 to 40 homes were damaged in the Barnsdall area, which was also hit by a tornado earlier on April 1, according to the state’s Department of Emergency Management. Officials also reported a natural gas leak in Barnsdall.
