Cleanup is underway at the home of Rick Payne where a twister hit his house in a Bixby neighborhood near 131st and Garnett. He says everybody jumped into the closet just before the tornado struck early this morning. Everybody’s okay, but there’s lots of damage. He calls it a scary experience, but is glad no one was hurt.
Payne says they’ve had strong winds in the neighborhood before , but never an actual tornado until now.
