[Photograph 2012.201.OVZ001.7179]

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Daily Oklahoman newspaper. Caption: "W. A. Grandstaff stood helplessly on the porch of his hilltop home at NE 51 and Douglas Friday and watched as twisters wreaked havoc to the southeast. "My son yelled to me that there were papers flying in the air over the house. I ran to the back door to take a look but fierce winds and rain forced me back.(") Grandstaff ran to the front porch and saw two whip-like tails dangling to the ground from the ugly black sky..."when I first sighted them, they were over Douglas Blvd. in the vicinity of NE 46. The next thing I knew, I saw large pieces of tin and wood and other pieces of debris up into the sky on Chester (Chester is a street about a quarter mile east of Douglas.) What Grandstaff later discovered was the flying debris was from homes from the 4600 block, one home was demolished. Two trailer houses were blown from their concrete block foundations and toppled like toys onto their sides. Numerous homes had extensive glass and roof damage. Two blocks to the north, a home owned by Guy Adkisson, 4600 Chester, was lofted into the air by the twisters and dropped to the ground about 30 feet east of its foundation......"About the time we crouched down, the house began moving. The next thing I knew, it was as if the whole house came tumbling down." And it had. When the Adkissons dug themselves out of the rubble, they found their house was spread over nearly two acres...E. M. Thomas, one of the trailer inhabitants, said "I never heard or saw a thing. My six children, wife and I were watching television when everything went topsy-turvy."
