It was a noisy, windy Sunday night across parts of Green Country as storms swept through.

Destruction in Henryetta ranged from strong winds damaging several buildings and uprooting trees. The press box at the high school softball field also was flipped over, according to the Henryettan newspaper.

In Bryan County, near the Texas border, Gov. Kevin Stitt toured damage from a separate storm that hit last week. It has been declared an EF3, which means wind speeds were measured between 136-165 mph.

On Monday, the National Weather Service said 13 tornadoes touched down across Eastern Oklahoma on April 30. Three people died in that storm system.

Here's a link to the map from the NWS in Tulsa, outlining which communities were impacted and the paths of those tornadoes.

Forecasters say conditions appear to be shaping up for another bumpy ride on Wednesday.
