••• After tornadoes swept through central Oklahoma on Monday afternoon, approximately 20 people were being treated for injuries at Norman Regional Healthplex.

An emergency services staff member confirmed that patients had been transported to Norman Regional, but could not say whether numbers were higher or comment on the condition of patients being treated at the time.

Early reports have confirmed one known fatality from the storm so far, but emergency officials expect more conclusive numbers as information becomes available.

Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management spokesman Jerry Lojka said two people were killed Oklahoma City and three were killed in Cleveland County, which is south of the city. The agency did not have any additional details, including how the people die.

Officials reported that at least 58 others suffered injuries throughout Oklahoma Tornado in the daylong onslaught. Two of the injuries were critical.
