Tornado damage also in Ardmore

ARDMORE, OK -- The deadly tornado that swept through Lone Grove also did damage to a neighborhood and school in Ardmore.

Eight to 10 homes in the upscale Majestic Hills subdivision and the private school Ardmore Adventist Academy were destroyed by the Tuesday storm. Another 20 or more homes have damage ranging from
notable to heavy.

Ardmore city Commissioner Bob Geurin says many people aren't even aware of the damage because of the attention on Lone Grove where eight people were killed by the twister.

The private school is run by the Seventh-day Adventist and officials say they'll use the church until a more permanent solution is found.
