Storm devastates parts of Oklahoma Panhandle

Posted: Updated:
Keyes, OK - A tornado-like storm devastated some homes in its path near Keyes Monday night.

For the Reimer family, returning to their farm Tuesday morning after taking shelter from the storm was not an easy sight to see.

"I was devastated," said John Reimer. "It's just hard to describe how things could happen like that."

Strong winds lifted their mobile home off the ground and took off parts of the roof. An awning covering their cars also collapsed during the storm. Farm equipment and parts of their building are now scattered in nearby fields a couple miles away.

But despite the severe damage to their property, no one in the Reimer family was seriously injured during the storm.

"I'm lucky we're all okay," said Reimer. "I think we'll rebuild and move on. That's the only thing we can do."
