A strong storm rolled through northern and northwestern Oklahoma Monday evening, bringing with it high winds that derailed a train.

FOX 25 Storm Tracker Shane Helton reports that a BNSF train derailed shortly after 11 p.m. Monday evening north of Waynoka.

The wind was able to topple the two trains in the area. No injuries were reported in the derailment but authorities were cautious for a time because one container held fireworks.
