Large tornado hits near Oklahoma City, killing 1 and destroying several homes

Dramatic footage shows massive tornado on the ground in Garvin County, Oklahoma; NWS urges residents to seek shelter.

A tornado that tore through Wynnewood, Oklahoma, this afternoon, left one man dead, destroyed several homes and severely damaged others, and also killed some livestock, officials said.

According to the Garvin County Office of Emergency Management, the victim was a man believed to be in his 70s who was in his home when the tornado struck.

After hitting Wynnewood, the tornado moved east across I-35 toward Joy, Oklahoma. Forecasters issued a "tornado emergency" for communities in that area, noting the storm could be particularly violent.

It's not a trip to Oklahoma without seeing a tornado...

And the threat is not over. The National Weather Service issued a tornado emergency for the Hickory and Roff, Oklahoma, areas, where a large and dangerous tornado was approaching.

A tornado watch had been issued earlier in the afternoon for parts of Oklahoma, Arkansas and northeastern Texas. The watch is in effect until 9 p.m. CT.

A severe thunderstorm watch was issued for parts of Oklahoma and Kansas, also in effect until 9 p.m. CT.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
