Smith said the National Weather Service did not have a total number of storms to report as of Sunday night.

“We're still counting,” Smith said. “We had two main storms. We had a storm that produced several tornadoes along a path from Edmond up into Lincoln County.

“Then we had a second storm that developed here on the west side of Norman. We watched it right outside the window here, and it tracked across the north part of Norman.

Weather Service survey teams will go out Monday to assess the different damage areas.
