Storm chasers capture video of tornado striking Oklahoma wind farm

Southwestern Oklahoma was the site of an unusual November outbreak of tornadoes yesterday where as many as six twisters raked the countryside. Storm chasers tracked many of the tornadoes including one group of chasers that captured amazing video of a twister striking the Blue Canyon Wind Farm.

Thunderstorms began brewing in northern Texas near the panhandle late Monday morning. By the early afternoon the storms had migrated to the northeast and into Oklahoma where they began their rampage.

Dozens of hail reports were submitted to the Storm Prediction Center as were six tornadoes. The twisters struck to the southwest of Oklahoma City in Caddo, Kiowa and Tillman counties.

One of the twisters in Tillman County is responsible for damaging a farmhouse while the family took cover in a storm cellar. Barns in the town of Frederick were damaged and some livestock was lost.

Several homes in Caddo County sustained light damage as did a garage in Kiowa County.

A group of storm chasers known as the ‘Basehunters’ captured stunning video of a tornado hitting the Blue Canyon Wind Farm, the largest in the state of Oklahoma. The twister is seen raking the wind turbines although amazingly enough, no damage appears to have occurred.
