TULSA - A rush of high winds hitting Green Country late Friday afternoon has resulted in a number of grass fires, road closures, power outages and evacuations.
Three people were found dead in a destroyed mobile home shortly after the burst. Family members have identified the dead as two grandparents and a granddaughter.
The winds also resulted in the death of 70-year-old man Jimmy King, whose semi truck overturned after a wind gust caught the vehicle's trailer near mile marker 308 of the Will Rogers Turnpike.
