Oklahoma City, OK – Winds in SE Oklahoma cause damage to homes

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Strong winds in southeastern Oklahoma have toppled trees and damaged at least a dozen homes.

LeFlore County Emergency Management Director Michael Davidson said Tuesday that 12 homes sustained damage, and one home in Pocola had the whole roof blown off.

He said officials are still surveying the damage and getting a final count of homes affected.

There were no reports of injuries.

He said most of the damage is in the northeast part of the county, near the town of Spiro.

Davidson said two individuals had to be evacuated from their home because the Poteau River was rising rapidly.
