SW)--Severe storms left a path of damage across parts of central Oklahoma last night with high winds, hail, and several tornados. Here in the Enid area, many locations picked up an inch or more of rain Sunday and last night.

TT)—Organizers say the 140-foot tree that will be the center piece of “The One” celebration and display this holiday and Christmas season is making its way to Enid from the west coast. As of this (Monday) morning, the semi hauling the “Christ Tree” was in Nevada. Plans call for the tree to arrive Wednesday evening, but that could change if the trip is affected by weather conditions. When it does arrive, it will enter Enid from the west on US 412, and make its way to its display site on Park Avenue in downtown. There will then be several weeks of work by speciality crews to get the tree in its final display form and decorated.
