Pecan Valley neighborhood hit

(Continued)

NORMAN —

District 1 crews were on the scene at Pecan Valley early on.

“We (District 2) initially assisted the city of Norman in those areas affected,” Stacy said. “We had enough crews to head in both directions immediately because all three responded.

While the immediate concern is search and rescue and clearing roads of debris, cleanup will be a lengthy process.

“We’re leaving crews on standby through the night to assist in search and rescue operations,” Stacy said. “We’ll be in the area over the next few days assisting Cleveland County residents with clean up.”

A family on 180th Avenue Northeast north of Franklin missed the worst of the tornado but lost an uninhabited mobile home and had damage to a shed.

“We saw it coming,” Mike Coon said. “We watched it, then we went to the cellar.”

Coon said his family got lucky. Pecan Valley lies just a mile to the northeast.

“My sympathy goes out to the families here that have lost their houses and property. The damage was significant,” Stacy said. “The cooperation between the sheriff’s department and the commissioner’s districts has been excellent.”
