This tornado touched down in extreme southern Love County near Burneyville, OK at about 7:30 pm CST. As it moved northeastward, it struck farming communities east of Dickson, OK and northwest of Mannsville, OK in Johnston County between 8:30 and 9:00 pm CST. The tornado continued through Johnston County over range and pasture land before lifting north of Ravia, OK and Troy, OK. It killed 2 people and injured 11 more. Property damages of $20,000 occurred to 12 farmsteads.

  05/09/2016 1618-1636 9 700 EF3 1 0 Johnston/ Coal 4 S Connerville - Bromide

The tornado formed near U.S. Highway 377/OK State Highway 99 in northern Johnston County about 4 miles south of Connerville, OK. The tornado damage trees and power poles, and caused roof damage to a home as it crossed Tower Road. Passing Deadman Spring Road, the tornado destroyed a modular home where the fatality occurred. A truck parked at this house was carried 250 yards to the east. The tornado continued moving east-northeast with more tree damage, and light damage to a couple of houses at the edge of the tornado path. Fortunately, as the tornado had weakened as it approached the town of Bromide, OK with only light tree damage observed there.

From about 1.25 miles west of Bromide to where it dissipated just east of Bromide, the tornado moved down the Johnston-Coal county line affecting both counties. The center line of the tornado moved into Coal County in Bromide. Only light tree damage was observed in and near Bromide.
