Tuesday's storms leave behind damages in parts of Marshall County

KINGSTON, Okla. (KXII) - "Looked like a big band of metal hanging from one end of the building to the next," Chris Kastner said.

The owners of K-Town car wash, Karon and Chris Kastner, say they got a call from customers that part of the awning had fallen off.

"They thought there was going to be big hail so they were in here hiding from the hail when the thing fell so it kinda scared them," Chris Kastner said.

The Kastner's say they had help bringing down the awning and the fire department was able to move it out of the driveway.

"He was kind enough to come over here and say let me help you out and went up there and unattached from the one side," Karon Kastner said, "Then he drove it over there to the other side and they took it down."

The county's Emergency Management Director Robert Chaney says they got several calls of winds ripping shingles off of roofs and blowing tree limbs onto roadways and power lines.

"The biggest problem that we experienced in Madill and somewhat in Kingston is the traffic lights were knocked out and so that created a lot of issues," Chaney said.

Electrical issues that left OG&E to spend hours locating the damaged lines and restoring the power.

"There were some that came on within two hours and there were some that didn't, it just depends on where the problem is and what the problem is." Communications Director Robert Holliday said.
