Oklahoma victims of severe weekend weather identified
NOWATA (AP) — Nowata County officials have released the names of a couple and their 4-month-old grandson who were killed when severe weather overturned the couple's mobile home.
Undersheriff Doug Sonenberg said Monday the victims of Friday's storm are 73-year-old Ronald Inman, 70-year-old Rosella Inman and their infant grandson, Kenadie Inman.
Strong storms erupted Friday as a cold front pushed into the state. Authorities said high winds picked up the Inmans' mobile home, carried it about 100 yards and dropped the wreckage into a creek. The victims' bodies were found in the water after a two-hour search.
A Missouri truck driver also died when wind flipped his semi onto a cement barrier wall, trapping him inside for three hours near Afton in Ottawa County. He was previously identified as 70-year-old Jimmy King.
