Huge storm front came thru about 7pm. Blew down lots of transmission towers, and caused damage from Perry to Ponca. Stillwater, Perry, Ponca, Red Rock, Billings, and Tonkawa are without power. Lots of damage. I was at the range shooting when it came through. It caused lots of damage at the range with a conex building being blown 1/4 mile, all of the porta potties missing in action, and heavy steel shooting benches being found more than 1/8 mile away.
Our target shack on the range I was shooting at, blew up with the instant gust. I got a puncture wound, on the arm and a 6" cut on a leg. Nothing serious, but lucky the main debris didn't get me.



This is the shack that got me.

You sure it wasn't a small twister or microburst that got you?

We lost power around 8pm last night as well and it came back on around 4pm today. Had to take cold items to friends to keep from going bad. Thank goodness it cooled off with that storm.

Was shooting prone at the time, otherwise, It may have turned out different. Big work day this sunday for the club member.
