5 Dead as More Tornadoes Slam Oklahoma City Area


 Less than two weeks after a tornado killed dozens of people in Moore, Oklahoma, more twisters and violent weather swept through the area, leaving at least five people dead, flipping trucks on interstate highways during rush hour and miring cars in deep floods.

Accordinng to ABCNews, The National Weather Service initially estimated that five tornadoes touched down in the Oklahoma City area, though the number was likely to change as survey teams visited the area Saturday.


The weather was blamed for at least five deaths, according to the Oklahoma Medical Examiner's Office. Among them were a mother and her baby possibly sucked out of their cars near Interstate 40, Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Betsy Randolph told ABC News.

"We know that the storm picked them up and swept them away," Randolph said. "When the troopers found them, they were both deceased.

"We know that a mother and a child were killed tonight on I-40 in Canadian County," Randolph said. "I cannot stress to you just how important it is that if people don't have to be out, that they stay inside and seek shelter. ... There's just no safe place to be except underground when a tornado is present."
