A farm where portions of the movie "Twister" were shot has been damaged by a real tornado.

Scenes for the movie were shot at J. Berry Harrison Sr.'s farm in Fairfax about 120 miles northeast of Oklahoma City. A real tornado hit the farm Monday when a half dozen twisters touched down during storms in Oklahoma.

Harrison said Saturday he lost two houses, five barns, two silos, a horse and farm equipment. He says his family wasn't hurt, although his son and his family were in one of the homes when the tornado hit. Harrison says the tornado took the roof off but the walls stood.

In the 1996 movie starring Helen Hunt, a tornado runs along a road and over a bridge where actors are taking shelter. Harrison says the real tornado followed a similar path.
