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

Posted: Updated:

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.
