Tornadoes Strike Norman- Shawnee Oklahoma

As a Tornado Watch continues for that area and more severe weather is forecast for at least the next 30 hours- tornadoes hit populated areas of Oklahoma...

A small tornado touched down in Norman Oklahoma about 4:15 p.m. Friday afternoon- causing reportedly "minor injuries."

Major structure damage was reported near Robinson and 12th Avenue Northeast and 24th Avenue Southwest and Lindsay- according to The OKLAHOMAN online.

Damage to roofs of several dozen homes and structures- power lines/poles and trees were noted in a wider area from those locations.

KFOR-4 in Oklahoma City is reporting "11 minor injuries" have been treated at a hospital in Norman.

Initial tornado intensity estimate was possibly as high as an EF-2....

About 30 minutes later that same storm cell produced another tornado in northwestern Shawnee OK..

Although there are reports of structures damaged- there are yet no reports of injuries as the tornado crossed I-40 in northwest Shawnee.
