Tornado A Mile Long Hits Lockwood

CREATED May. 20, 2013

The National Weather Service says it was an EF-O tornado that hit Lockwood overnight.

Meteorologist Ryan Kardell says the twister damaged a golf course, city pool and a grocery store.

The EF-O had 80-mile-an hour winds.

It was about 100-yards wide and one mile long.

Survey teams are also checking out damage to homes and businesses in Carthage, and plan to check on a barn that was destroyed in Aldrich.

A tornado watch is in effect until 10 p.m. tonight for the entire KTTS listening area.
