Thunderstorms that moved through northeastern Oklahoma on Saturday did spawn a tornado that touched down in Wagoner County, and it helped set a tornado record for Oklahoma.

Wagoner County Emergency Management reported minor tornado damage at a home near 193rd East Avenue and 101st Street in the Broken Arrow area. A large portion of the roof was torn off the house. Also some trees were damaged.

Emergency management officials say Oklahoma has seen a total of 147 tornadoes in 2019 and ten in the Tulsa County area. Those are both records.
