Oklahoma Tornado Claims More Victims: UPDATE
06/04/2013

UPDATE:

The Oklahoma Medical Examiner's Office says the death toll from Friday's tornadoes and floods is up to 19.

The agency didn't name the additional victim Tuesday, but said the victim was an adult.

Storms that swept through the Oklahoma City area on Friday generated an EF5 tornado and violent flash floods. The tornado was also the widest one ever recorded -- 2.6 miles long.

Office spokeswoman Amy Elliott didn't indicate whether the latest death was in an area that was flooded or hit by tornadoes.

Four more deaths are being attributed to the tornadoes and flooding last week in Oklahoma.
 
     The Oklahoma medical examiner's office said Monday that 18 people died as a result of the powerful storms that swept through the Oklahoma City area late Friday. The previous death toll had been 14.
 
     Spokeswoman Amy Elliott says the dead include 12 adults and six children. Seven remain unidentified.
 
     The National Weather Service says five tornadoes touched down Friday, along with heavy rain that caused widespread flooding. Some victims have been difficult to find because their bodies floated away.
 
     Among those killed were storm chasers Tim Samaras, his son Paul, and colleague Carl Young. They were killed in the tornado that struck El Reno.
 
     The Oklahoma City Fire Department says a 34-year-old woman remains missing.
