Four killed in tornado outbreak in central Oklahoma

Tecumseh, Okla. (AP) _ Four people were killed in Oklahoma Monday during an outbreak of violent weather that dropped tornadoes and 4-inch hail across portions of the southern plains.

The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management said three people were killed at Tecumseh and that another person died at Oklahoma City. Tecumseh is about 45 miles southeast of Oklahoma City.

The storms caused traffic accidents that closed two major cross-country interstates. Damage was reported throughout much of northern, central and eastern Oklahoma.

The Storm Prediction Center at Norman had predicted the outbreak, saying the atmosphere had the right mix of winds, heat and moisture. One twister touched down just east of the center's building on the University of Oklahoma campus.
