Deputy Sheriff Scott Gibbons said, “We’re going to completely destroy some homes throughout our county.

The National Weather Service (NWS) found a house damaged by an EF-3 tornado near Cole, a rural town of 600 people. An EF-3 is the third strongest tornado on the revised Fujita scale, with sustained winds of 265 km/h.

In Gol, two people escaped the storm by hiding in a manhole and emerged unharmed, according to KFOR-TV. It is estimated that up to 100 houses have collapsed in the area.
