At least two tornadoes have touched down and hail the size of softballs pounded northwestern Oklahoma, injuring two people and damaging a county jail and numerous vehicles.
The National Weather Service says one tornado was spotted about 3 miles south-southwest of Woodward about 5:30 p.m. Monday. Another tornado was spotted east of Sharon.
In Woodward, hail up to 4.25 inches broke vehicle windows and damaged roofs.
Woodward County Emergency Management Director Matt Lehenbauer says an infant was cut by glass when hail knocked out windows in its parents' vehicle. Lehenbauer says he didn't believe the baby was seriously hurt.
Sheriff Gary Stanley says hail broke every skylight in the jail and one hail stone cut an inmate on the back.
Stanley says the hail damage caused the roof to leak.
And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword.
And there fell on men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a pound: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
