 Brief Description: This tornado formed over northern portions of Lake Texoma, then tracked northeastward for 16 miles before crossing into western Atoka County. About 5 miles east of Tishomingo in Johnston County, 2 injuries, both requiring hospital care, occurred when a mobile home was lofted and deposited upside-down about 40 yards from its original location. In addition, a frame home 1 mile east of Milburn was severely damaged when the roof was completely removed. Across the remainder of the damage path in Johnston County, 3 additional mobile homes were destroyed, and 21 other structures, including 1 business and 2 churches, sustained damage. Six tornadoes across southern Oklahoma and one tornado across western north Texas developed during the overnight hours of the 11th. The most notable tornado formed across Coal County in Oklahoma and resulted in one fatality and one injury as it destroyed a mobile home. In addition to damage produced by severe thunderstorms, sustained winds of 40 to 50 mph with gusts as high as 73 mph developed just ahead of the most frequent period of severe weather and persisted for several hours. In Tillman County, at 2330 CST on the 10th, a barn roof was damaged 3 miles east of Frederick. A barn roof was blown off, and a fence was downed 4 miles east of Frederick, and a house roof sustained minor damage 4 miles north of Frederick. Trees and power lines were downed in Ponca City in Kay County, while in Garfield County, minor but widespread damage, was sustained to trees, power poles, and numerous other structures.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: This tornado is labeled #N2. The tornado developed about a mile south-southeast of Coleman and moved southeast another mile, eventually traveling just into Atoka county. Several buildings, including a home, sustained major damage. Four other homes sustained at least partial damage. The U Cross Arena and Pavilion was heavily damaged, with part of the roof moved removed, steal beams on the outside of the building knocked down, and a section of the building completely destroyed. The tornado continued across the Atoka county border. This tornado moved into Atoka County. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A significant outbreak of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes affected a large part of northern, central, and southern Oklahoma. Tornadoes were most numerous across central and southern Oklahoma, with significant damage occurring over many areas. Severe thunderstorms erupted by mid afternoon across northern and western Oklahoma. Given the potent combination of ingredients in place, storms began to produce tornadoes quickly after initiation. Storm motions of 50 to 60 mph were common. During the mid afternoon hours, severe weather was confined to northern Oklahoma. It was there a long track supercell storm produced tornadoes near the Kansas border - including one rated EF3 - from near Wakita to north of Braman. The capping inversion that had delayed thunderstorm development into central Oklahoma weakened, allowing for explosive supercell development along the dry line along and west of the Interstate 35 corridor. Rapid development and intensification was common with the late afternoon storms, with storms becoming tornadic within a very short time after initiation. This round of storms would directly impact a large part of the Oklahoma City metro area at rush hour, and posed a significant threat to the area. The first tornado in this area occurred in Canadian County. During the next several hours, tornadoes were clustered around the metro area, and at times there were multiple significant damaging tornadoes occurring simultaneously. Several of the tornadoes had long tracks. Damage from the tornadoes was substantial, with numerous structures, vehicles, trees and power poles/lines significantly damaged or destroyed. One of the more intense tornadoes moved across Lake Thunderbird east of Norman destroying numerous boats. More storms developed across southwest and south central Oklahoma, and also quickly became tornadic. By 9 pm, 35 tornadoes had been reported. While the loss of three lives was tragic, the casualties could have been much higher given the storm's fast motions, their intensity, the time of day and the areas impacted. While exact monetary damage figures were not available, it is estimated that losses were in excess of $595 million. At least 450 sustained injuries, most of them minor. Unfortunately three people lost their lives. Note: The large number of injuries and tornadoes made it difficult to associate injuries with specific tornadoes. Injury numbers were included when we had confidence in the numbers. Note: The complex nature of storm evolutions and interactions made the job of classifying tornadoes difficult. This represents our best scientific assessment based on ground and aerial surveys, data from multiple radars, photographic and video evidence and anecdotal information.

 Brief Description: This strong F2 tornado is the final of three Oklahoma tornadoes produced by a supercell that moved across south central Oklahoma. The tornado was seen by spotters touching down approximately a mile east of the Carter-Marshall county line. The tornado then moved northeast before dissipating north of Antioch. The most significant damage was sustained in an area about three miles west of Antioch along Highway 70. A wood frame home lost its roof and two walls. Two barns also lost roofs in this area. A forty foot by one hundred foot barn south of Highway 70 was heavily damaged. Three tractors were also damaged. One of the tractors was hooked up to a hay baler and was moved 100 yards. This was the first of three tornadic events in two days for Oklahoma. The other two events occurred on the afternoon of May 8 and on May 9, 2003 (see appropriate storm data). The five tornadoes that occurred in south central Oklahoma all happened after midnight with the strongest tornadoes producing F2 damage. One large supercell produced the three strongest tornadoes of the night.

 Brief Description: This is the second Oklahoma tornado of three that was produced by a supercell that moved across south central Oklahoma. This strong F2 tornado moved southeast and then turned more easterly before dissipating within Lake Murray State Park. A double-wide mobile home was destroyed by the tornado. A brick home lost two of its walls and the roof was removed. Four other homes were also heavily damaged with roofs removed and walls damaged. Two barns were also damaged. The tornado crossed Interstate 35 near mile marker 21. A tractor trailer was blown off the interstate just south of this location. The state park sustained some tree damage on the southwest side of Lake Murray. This was the first of three tornadic events in two days for Oklahoma. The other two events occurred on the afternoon of May 8 and on May 9, 2003 (see appropriate storm data). The five tornadoes that occurred in south central Oklahoma all happened after midnight with the strongest tornadoes producing F2 damage. One large supercell produced the three strongest tornadoes of the night.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: This long track tornado developed over far southeast Jefferson County, near the Red River, and continued northeast into Love County crossing through rural farmland north of Courtney, Rubottom and Oswalt. The tornado then crossed into Carter County, with sporadic damage noted in the sparsely populated areas in the southwest part of the county. The tornado appeared to reach its maximum width and intensity as it approached and moved through Lone Grove. The tornado destroyed or severely damaged numerous mobile homes, homes and businesses in and around Lone Grove. Numerous mobile homes were completely obliterated with few recognizable pieces left. EF4 damage was noted at two locations, one in Lone Grove and the other in the Majestic Hills area north of Ardmore. Numerous vehicles were rolled or thrown, some for considerable distances. Six of the fatalities occurred in mobile homes and one in a well-built home that sustained EF4 damage. The eighth fatality occurred when a truck driving south on Interstate 35 was hit by the tornado killing the driver. The tornado continued northeast, with major damage reported in the Majestic Hills addition and crossing Interstate-35 about a mile and a half north of the Prairie Valley Road exit. At least eight homes and a small private school were destroyed in the Majestic Hills neighborhood. It moved through rural areas of Northeast Carter County to the east of Springer. Approximately 46 people were injured, with 14 seriously injured. Eight people died in the Lone Grove area. At least 114 homes were damaged or destroyed, with at least 3500 losing power in and around Carter county. Debris from this tornado was picked up as far away as Sulphur. Monetary damage estimates were not available. EPISODE NARRATIVE: Thunderstorms developed early in the afternoon, from near the Lawton area, northeast toward the Oklahoma metro area. Thunderstorms became severe relatively quickly as they moved through Caddo and Grady counties, and began to show signs of rotation as they moved toward western Oklahoma City. One supercell thunderstorm spawned several tornadoes as it moved through western and northern Oklahoma. Sporadic damage was reported along its path, some of it significant as it moved through northern Oklahoma county and southern Logan county. Other supercells developed near the same areas of Caddo and Grady counties and moved northeast. Some locations received several rounds of very large hail through the afternoon. Later in the afternoon, a second area of thunderstorms developed over northern Texas. Several supercell thunderstorms developed and moved northeast toward the Red River. One supercell thunderstorm moved northeast over Clay county and northwest Montague county. A tornado developed as it moved into Jefferson county near the Red River. It continued northeast through western Love county and into Carter County. Significant damage was reported in and around the Lone Grove area and over the far north sides of Ardmore. There were eight fatalities in and around Lone Grove. The tornado crossed Interstate 35 and eventually crossed into southern Murray county. Wind damage was reported in Coal and Atoka counties. Minor injuries were reported with the Atoka county thunderstorms. Monetary damages were estimated.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: At least 4 mobile homes and 1 foundation home were destroyed by a large tornado. Other homes and outbuildings sustained minor to moderate damage. Widespread tree and power line damage was also noted along its track, and some high tension lines were downed. This tornado is labeled #E3. Monetary damages were estimated. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A significant outbreak of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes affected a large part of northern, central, and southern Oklahoma. Tornadoes were most numerous across central and southern Oklahoma, with significant damage occurring over many areas. Severe thunderstorms erupted by mid afternoon across northern and western Oklahoma. Given the potent combination of ingredients in place, storms began to produce tornadoes quickly after initiation. Storm motions of 50 to 60 mph were common. During the mid afternoon hours, severe weather was confined to northern Oklahoma. It was there a long track supercell storm produced tornadoes near the Kansas border - including one rated EF3 - from near Wakita to north of Braman. The capping inversion that had delayed thunderstorm development into central Oklahoma weakened, allowing for explosive supercell development along the dry line along and west of the Interstate 35 corridor. Rapid development and intensification was common with the late afternoon storms, with storms becoming tornadic within a very short time after initiation. This round of storms would directly impact a large part of the Oklahoma City metro area at rush hour, and posed a significant threat to the area. The first tornado in this area occurred in Canadian County. During the next several hours, tornadoes were clustered around the metro area, and at times there were multiple significant damaging tornadoes occurring simultaneously. Several of the tornadoes had long tracks. Damage from the tornadoes was substantial, with numerous structures, vehicles, trees and power poles/lines significantly damaged or destroyed. One of the more intense tornadoes moved across Lake Thunderbird east of Norman destroying numerous boats. More storms developed across southwest and south central Oklahoma, and also quickly became tornadic. By 9 pm, 35 tornadoes had been reported. While the loss of three lives was tragic, the casualties could have been much higher given the storm's fast motions, their intensity, the time of day and the areas impacted. While exact monetary damage figures were not available, it is estimated that losses were in excess of $595 million. At least 450 sustained injuries, most of them minor. Unfortunately three people lost their lives. Note: The large number of injuries and tornadoes made it difficult to associate injuries with specific tornadoes. Injury numbers were included when we had confidence in the numbers. Note: The complex nature of storm evolutions and interactions made the job of classifying tornadoes difficult. This represents our best scientific assessment based on ground and aerial surveys, data from multiple radars, photographic and video evidence and anecdotal information.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: The tornado continued into Pushmataha county before lifting 2.75 miles WSW of Adel. In Atoka County, three houses were damaged. The roof was removed and some of the exterior walls on one well-built home were collapsed. Numerous trees were uprooted or snapped above the ground. Monetary damage were estimated. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A powerful storm system strengthened over the central Plains during the day on Saturday, drawing rich gulf moisture north into eastern Oklahoma. A surface low pressure developed with a trailing cold front that moved quickly through western Oklahoma, and a dry line extending to the east of the cold front. Isolated severe thunderstorms developed near Hughes county early in the afternoon, with large hail reported in a few locations. Later in the afternoon, supercells over eastern Oklahoma expanded southwest. One supercell developed over far eastern Atoka county, producing a tornado near Daisy and large hail. Damage was reported with the tornado, but there were no injuries. Monetary damages were estimated.
