Possible tornado in Sapulpa
The Sapulpa Police Department posted this message on Facebook:
As you all know, Sapulpa has been hit by a tornado. We have all available officers and firefighters reporting for duty for damage assessment and locating any possible victims.
Our officers have noticed an increase in traffic on the streets by people looking at storm damage. Please stay off the streets. There are downed power lines and trees all over town. Additionally we have received reports of ruptured gas lines and water main breaks. It is dangerous to be out at this time and it causes emergency personnel more issues.
Check on your neighbors, family and friends and make sure everyone is safe. If you need medical assistance or any other emergency services please call 911.
We will give additional updates as warranted.
