MEDFORD, Okla. (AP) - The National Weather Service says several tornadoes touched down in Oklahoma - but officials say there are no reports of injuries or serious damage.

Meteorologist Rick Smith with the weather service in Norman says the tornadoes touched down near Medford in north-central Oklahoma on Monday night. Meteorologist Bart Haaky (HA'-key) with the weather service in Tulsa says at least one twister also touched down near Nowata.

Both said the only damage appears to be to farm structures such as barns and outbuildings. The weather service will work Tuesday to determine how many tornadoes touched down.

Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management spokeswoman Keli Cain says crews from that agency will go to both areas Tuesday to assess damage and determine what state assistance may be needed.
