May 10, 2008 Severe Weather Event

During the afternoon and early evening hours on May 10, 2008, a tornado outbreak occurred across eastern Oklahoma. This event was caused by a strong storm system moving across Kansas and combining with warm/moist air across Oklahoma. Storms rapidly developed around 5pm with several supercells in eastern Oklahoma. One supercell moved along the Oklahoma/Kansas border and produced a tornado that hit Picher, Oklahoma. Other storms developed farther south into Oklahoma with McAlester being impacted..
