“We could hear the wind and the sky was brown from dirt being blown up,” Katrina Douglas told of her account in Yukon on Tuesday on her Gather.com blog. “You couldn’t stand up without the wind pushing you. I drove home just ahead of the tornado, and saw cars and trucks blown off the road.”

On another blog post, Douglas reported that about 40 tornadoes hit central Oklahoma, with three touching down Thursday.

Since Monday, severe storms, rippled tornadoes, and hail have destroyed houses, power lines, and vehicles.

Michelann Ooten, spokeswoman for the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management, announced the new death toll of two, a decrease from the original five, as three children who were initially thought to be dead were actually in critical conditions in a hospital.

Currently 56 counties in Oklahoma are in a state of emergency declared by Governor Brad Henry on Tuesday.

More thundershowers are expected in Oklahoma City until Sunday, according to the Weather Network.

During severe storms, many Oklahoma homes are installed with weather radios that alert the residents of dangers throughout the night.
