Storms Leave Damage and Injured



Undated – 1 person hurt as storms leave damage in Oklahoma

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Severe thunderstorms pounded parts of central Oklahoma, leaving some people trapped in their cars by power lines brought down by strong winds.

Norman Deputy Fire Chief Jim Bailey says one person was cut on the head after a severe storm knocked a power line onto a car. Bailey also said several people were trapped in their vehicles by power lines at an apartment complex.

Bailey also said some homes, businesses and other structures had roof damage. He said officials planned to do an aerial survey of the city on Wednesday.

The National Weather Service reported wind gusts between 65 mph and 70 mph with the storm.
