A fast-moving thunderstorm brought down a tree near Bristow Run Elementary School in Bristow.

A quick, energetic thunderstorm swept through Bristow bringing high winds, torrential downpours and plenty of property damage.

While no tornado activity was reported, heavy winds brought down a number of trees and scattered yard furniture.

Reports of wind damage came from all over Bristow.

“My neighbor lost a potion of their tree in the front.,” Susan LeDrew of Bristow said. “Thankfully it came down in between two of my trees and not on my porch!”

Other resident reported encounters with yard furniture that residents did not secure.

“[My] neighbors open umbrella snapped in half, just thanking God it didn’t go through our morning room” Colleen Burnett of Bristow said.

National Weather Service forecasters expect showers and thunderstorms to continue until after 8 p.m. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect until 8 p.m. for the region.

“While that was likely the main event of the evening, storm threat continues overnight and into the day on Tuesday with possibly more severe storms ahead of a strong cold front,” Bristow weatherman John Biggs posted on the Bristow Weather Association Facebook page. “Behind the cold front, we will see highs only near 80 with comfortable humidity.”
