The size of individual storms and area of storms so massive and powerful no chance of missing OKC-Moore-Norman area or weakening before arrival about 9:45pm CT. Expect 70-80 mph gust front before storms arrive. Wide-spread wind damage predicted, to snap off power poles, leaving thousands without power 1-3 days. The storms coming out of the panhandle moving ESE are producing tornadoes, hail, damaging wind, and flooding – expect series of storms until sunrise tomorrow Tuesday 4 July 2017 Independence Day. People here are more likely to be cleaning up after storm damage tomorrow than doing any celebrating of the holiday.
