No Storm Damage Reported in County


A fierce storm which blew through Sequoyah County between midnight and 1 a.m. Tuesday did little damage, officials reported.

The Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office and County Commissioners Ray Watts, District 1, Steve Carter, District 2, and Jim Rogers, District 3, all said they had no reports of major damage to buildings or roads. Rogers said he did receive a call at about 4 a.m. Tuesday about trees down on 4710 Road, west of Muldrow. They were quickly removed.

No damage “was a nice surprise,” Rogers said. “We like it like that.”

However, across the county line, in Adair County, the rural community of Greasy lost their community building. The National Weather Service said possibly an EF-1 tornado set down in the area.

Cherokee officials have announced they will step in to help rebuild.

The Greasy Community Building was constructed in 2003. The Cherokee Nation helped fund the building, which volunteers constructed.
