TULSA — At first, Jacqueline Chadwick thought suburbs to the south and west of Tulsa would see the worst of the storm damage. She had a local weather broadcast playing on her TV and had just called a relative south of town to let him know he should take cover from a possible tornado.

But shortly after she went to her porch to get a better look at the rainfall, the wind suddenly picked up, making it impossible to clearly see the fence to her backyard.

"Me and my dog barely made it to the bathroom," said Chadwick. "Cabinets are off the walls. There are holes, cracks and pictures down. The china cabinet fell over. It was like it just tried to suck (the interior) from the inside out."
