Tornado Videos from OKC Area Storms 5/24/11

Below are a couple of videos that have emerged showing some of the tornadoes that struck the suburbs of OKC this past Tuesday.

First, the tornado near Chickasha:

The parent thunderstorm apparently produced "melon" size hail as the storm passed Blanchard and headed toward the Norman area:

Next, the tornado near El Reno (this is the largest tornado of the day, which eventually struck the Piedmont area):

Both have been preliminarily rated EF-3.  More details on these and the other Oklahoma tornadoes of Tuesday to come...
