Oklahoma Death Toll Lowered

Posted by wlpo on May 21, 2013

MOORE, Okla. (AP) – The state medical examiner’s office has revised the death toll from a tornado in Moore, Oklahoma to 24 people, including seven children.

A spokeswoman believes some victims were counted twice in the early chaos of the storm. Officials said initially that as many as 51 people were dead, including 20 children.

Teams are continuing to search the rubble in Moore, 10 miles south of Oklahoma City, after the Monday afternoon tornado.
