$95,000 in plants destroyed

US (OK): Tornado hits medical cannabis farm, nearly all 50 greenhouses destroyed

Sky 5 caught a tornado in its tracks as it nearly flattened a medical cannabis farm. The damage was significant, but the owner rode out the storm on the farm.

He estimated that $95,000 in plants were destroyed Wednesday when the tornado touched down in Maud, not far from a greenhouse and RVs where people lived on the property.

“This is the first season of the year, so now that the plants are exposed to the weather like this, they’re wasted – not good no more,” a farm employee said. “I’m still in shock. I haven’t fully wrapped my head around this.”

Almost all the nearly 50 greenhouses on site were destroyed. RVs were flipped and scattered. "That shed flew and hit the RV and knocked it down like that,” he said. Help arrived immediately after the tornado struck, fortunately.
