MIAMI, Okla. (AP) — At least six people have been treated for injuries after a deadly tornado struck the town of Quapaw in northeastern Oklahoma.

Kristie Wallace, a spokeswoman for the Baptist Regional Health Center in nearby Miami, says six people were treated there for injuries they received in Sunday's tornadoes. Four were listed in good condition and two others in fair condition.

Wallace says one of the patients listed in fair condition suffered a broken bone and has been admitted overnight. She says all the others were treated and released.

Ottawa County sheriff's dispatcher Colleen Thompson says two people were reportedly killed when the tornado struck the town about 5:30 p.m.

Ottawa County Emergency Management director Joe Dan Morgan says Quapaw, which has about 900 residents, was heavily damaged by the tornado.
