F-Scale Killed Injured County Location
  05/01/1954 1600 12 N/A F3 2 3 Tillman/ Cotton Near Grandfield - near Ahpeatone (~12 W Walters)

This twister was the third in a series of 20 tornadoes that occurred in Oklahoma on May 1, 1954. The tornado initiated at 4:00 pm CST, moved erratically from near the east edge of Grandfield in Tillman County northeastward to the Ahpeatone Community, 12 miles northwest of Walters in Cotton County. Two people were killed at Ahpeatone when they tried to escape the tornado in a pickup truck. The tornado caught and rolled the truck for a quarter of a mile. Ten homes  were damaged. A house and all adjacent barns were destroyed at one farmstead, and 2 people were critically injured. Damages were estimated at $500,000. The tornado was accompanied by extensive hail losses throughout Cotton County which were estimated at $1 million. An additional person drowned during a flash flood.
