ME Says 90-Year-Old Woman Is Tornado's 25th Victim

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Medical Examiner has increased the toll from the May 20 tornado at Moore after the death of a 90-year-old woman critically injured in the storm.

Spokeswoman Amy Elliott said Monday that the death of Kathryn Begay pushed the death toll to 25.

Begay's home in the town of Moore was destroyed and she suffered a fractured skull. Officials say she suffered a pair of strokes after the storm and died last Thursday.

A tornado that struck El Reno on May 31 killed 22 people, including 14 adults and eight children. Many victims drowned due to heavy rain from that storm.

    The Oklahoma state Senate has passed a bill to give teachers a pay raise. The bill would raise the price of gas and diesel to pay for road maintenance and use the money already put back for road projects instead on education. The problem that many in the Senate pointed out is that they don't have the power to authorize that move.
