I'm wondering if the dog was outside and the hail pounded the poor thing to death or if it was inside and was impaled by the glass shards. I'm not trying to be morbid, but that's just a little interesting.

Also, a PNS released from TSA mentioned a tornado touchdown 7 WSW of Hectorville in Okmulgee County. I assume it must have been somewhere in the line of storms that came through Tulsa late night on May 9 or early in the morning May 10.

IN ADDITION TO THE STRAIGHT-LINE WIND DAMAGE...THERE APPEARS TO HAVE
BEEN A TORNADO ABOUT 7 MILES WEST-SOUTHWEST OF HECTORVILLE. THE
TORNADO DESTROYED A COUPLE OF OUTBUILDINGS...UPROOTED OR SNAPPED A
NUMBER OF TREES...DAMAGED A CAMPER TRAILER...AND PRODUCED MINOR
DAMAGE TO A HOUSE. THE TORNADO WAS RATED F1 ON THE FUJITA SCALE AND
LIKELY PRODUCED WIND SPEEDS UP TO AROUND 80 MPH. IT OCCURRED AROUND
140 AM. THERE WERE NO INJURIES AS A RESULT OF THIS TORNADO. CURRENT
PATH INFORMATION FOR THIS TORNADO PENDING FURTHER DATA IS 1/2 MILE
LONG AND UP TO ABOUT 75 YARDS WIDE.[/b]

More information is pending about a possible tornado in NE Craig and NW Ottawa Counties early in the morning on May 9.
