A tornado watch has been issued for almost all of eastern Oklahoma until 11 p.m.

Overnight thunderstorms on Saturday led to damage in Broken Arrow. The homeowner tell us this tree is around 11 feet in diameter and was completely uprooted by winds.

Fox23 crews found damage throughout the Broken Arrow neighborhood. One woman told us her neighbors trampoline flew out of a backyard and a shed was knocked of it's foundation.

Sunday's forecast is showing a strong threat of severe weather throughout green country. Skies will continue to clear out and this will allow the lower-levels of the atmosphere to really warm and become unstable.

Large hail, 70+mph winds and tornadoes will all be possible. Storms look like they will get going after 4pm today west toward I-35.

Not everyone will see severe weather, but it is very important to stay alert today. Make sure you have a plan in the event you have to act.

Fox23 will continue to follow the storms as they move closer and you can always check radar on addition the Fox23 weather app can allow you to track the storms on your phone.

Could you start putting the nearest cross streets in your reports? We have no idea what part of town this was in.
