One person was killed Wednesday when either a tornado or straight-line winds ripped through a mobile home community in Oklahoma, said Maj. Shannon Clark with the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office.

“Right now, rescue efforts are continuing and officers are aiding the injured and helping those who need immediate medical care,” he said.

The damage happened at a park west of the city limits of Sand Springs, a suburb of Tulsa.

“We have very bad weather, so we will know more when daylight comes. It’s very tough conditions right now — very touch and go,” Clark said. “The conditions my people are working in right now are deplorable at best.”
