Lone Grove death toll climbs to nine

The clean-up continues after the tornado that tore through the southern Oklahoma town of Lone Grove.

Sadly, the death toll has now climbed to nine. The latest victim was a man who'd been transferred to a hospital in Dallas.

Most of the deaths happened in a trailer park in the area.  Emergency crews spent yesterday combing through the debris, in search of more victims.

The National Weather Service has assigned the deadly twister a preliminary EF-4 rating.  Winds were estimated at 170 miles per hour.  Survey teams say it appears the tornado stayed on the ground for more than an hour.
