National Weather Service-Tulsa

The National Weather Service in Tulsa releases its report on the Skiatook tornado on Sunday. The pre-dawn twister, from the same system that hit Woodward, was rated as an E-F-1. That means it had winds of at least  86-miles per hour.

Here is the text from the Weather Service Report:

The tornado developed just southwest of the intersection of N 68th W avenue and W 118th street N where trees were snapped and a garage was damaged. The tornado moved northeast from there, snapping or uprooting trees and damaging a metal framed hangar at the Skiatook municipal airport. The tornado dissipated just northeast of the airport. Maximum wind speed in the tornado was estimated to be from 90 to 100 mph based on some of the tree damage found within the path.
