FREDERICK — Meteorologists from the National Weather Service in Norman Tuesday are assessing tornado damages that were reported in southwest Oklahoma Monday afternoon.

A team is working in Tillman County, a weather service spokeswoman said.

Monday afternoon, 50-60 calves were killed when a barn at a dairy farm was hit by a tornado, said Sheriff Bobby Whittington, Tillman County. The farm is 6 miles west of Frederick.

An Oklahoma State University research station was damaged 3.5 miles south of Tipton on State Highway 5, Whittington said.

There was significant damage to a house southeast of Tipton and minor damages reported at five other homes in the county, Whittington said.

In Kiowa County, tornado damage was reported at a house east of Snyder, said Kiowa County emergency manager Bill Orebaugh.

A tornado touched down near the Texas line Monday afternoon and moved northeast across the Wichita Mountain Refuge and toward the Fort Cobb reservoir.

National Weather Service survey teams will complete reports on the tornadic activity from Monday, the spokeswoman in Norman said
