Thunderstorm Wind Event hits Oklahoma

A windy, stormy day in Oklahoma. Winds of up to 100 mph hit parts of East and Southeast Oklahoma this afternoon and trees were knocked down across the state. I heard a new word today, a very Oklahoma word - "gustnado". What's a "gustnado" you say? Well, it's not quite a tornado but more than a "dust devil". The NOAA calls it a "Thunderstorm Wind Event".
