Parts of Cherokee Nation report damages from tornadoes

The Cherokee Nation is helping its members who suffered property damage from a series of tornadoes in northeastern Oklahoma.

At least three tornadoes touched down in Delaware and Adair counties on May 22. Tribal members reported damage to their homes and property, with two mobile homes being completely destroyed.

"We ran out the door and we crawled over trees and made it to the top and his trailer was literally in pieces," Carol Arnold told The Cherokee Phoenix of her son's mobile home. She said her son suffered some injuries.
