UPDATE: Homes, School Damaged in Spavinaw

Posted: Updated:

Officials in Mayes County are reporting possible tornado damage near Spavinaw.

John Janzen, with Mayes County Emergency Management, says there are several trees down and damaged homes near the center of town.

The school superintendent said the storm damaged the school building and classes are canceled for Thursday and Friday.

One mobile home was lifted and landed on top of another mobile home.

About 20 to 30 people are being housed in a temporary shelter because their homes were damaged by what appears to have been a tornado, Janzen said.

Initial reports indicated there were several injures near Spavinaw, but Janzen says there was only one minor injury.

Most of the town is without power.
