The tornado moved northeast and destroyed a mobile home north of Blue where a 48-year old woman was killed.

  04/30/2019 2007-2042 28 1400 EF3 2 16 Bryan/ Atoka 2 SSE Blue - near Bentley - near Lane

A tornado developed about 2 miles south-southeast of Blue, and quickly became a large and strong tornado. Before crossing SH-70 east of Blue, the tornado widened to 1400 yards and damaged or destroyed a number of mobile homes. One mobile home was blown about 50-75 yards east-northeast into a grove of trees. A woman in this mobile home suffered significant injuries and died in a hospital on May 2, 2019. The tornado crossed US-70 producing significant tree damage. Just north of US-70, another mobile home was destroyed and blown away with another fatality. The tornado moved northeast into a less densely populate area, although at least one other home was unroofed northeast of Blue.

About two miles south of the Atoka County line, the tornado hit an anchored mobile home that was destroyed with the debris scattered hundreds of yards to the east and southeast. The tornado continued to produce tree damage in northern Bryan County and moved into Atoka County near just west of Matoy Road.
