Deadly twisters wreak havoc along Tornado Alley

Gov. Fallin declared a State of Emergency for 12 Oklahoma counties after dozens of tornadoes tore through the state late Wednesday.

The counties included in the governor’s proclamations are Alfalfa, Blaine, Caddo, Canadian, Cleveland, Dewey, Garfield, Grady, Grant, Major, McClain and Oklahoma.

The State of Emergency declaration will allow counties to make emergency purchases without limitations, said Fallin.

“Be weather aware over the next several days,” added Fallin, warning the residents about the probability of more severe weather hitting the Sooner State.

Excerpts from Fallin’s Executive Order 2015-23

Tornadoes, severe storms, straight-line winds and flooding beginning May 6, 2015, and continuing have caused extensive damage to public and private properties within the State of Oklahoma; and said damages have caused an undue hardship on the citizens of this state.

There is hereby declared a disaster emergency caused by the tornadoes, severe storms, straight-line winds and flooding in the State of Oklahoma that threatens the lives and property of the people of this State and the public’s peace, health and safety.

This declaration may be amended to add counties as conditions warrant.

This Executive Order shall terminate at the end of thirty (30) days.

Some 76 twisters tore through the Tornado Alley so far this month, destroying or damaging hundreds of structures and mobile homes and leaving massive flooding in their wake.

At least one person drowned after she became trapped in a storm shelter, said local reports.
