Weather officials say preliminary assessments show at least five tornadoes touched down in Oklahoma as a powerful storm system rumbled through the state.


National Weather Service meteorologist Ty Judd said Friday the most powerful of the twisters hit the town of Tushka in southeast Oklahoma, where at least two people were killed and dozens injured.

Judd says teams of meteorologists were in the field Friday surveying damage to determine the strength of the tornadoes.

Other twisters touched down briefly in Lincoln County, northwest of Stroud, and near Lake of the Arbuckles in southern Oklahoma.

A small tornado also touched down near Madill, and a fifth tornado developed east of Tushka near the town of Lane.
