OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Police in Oklahoma City have issued a request that residents stay away from areas that have sustained tornado damage.

Officials said Monday afternoon that victims remained trapped in wreckage and that emergency crews are trying to reach those areas to conduct search and rescue operations.

The area in Oklahoma City between Southwest 164th and Southwest 134th, and Western Avenue to Santa Fe Avenue is particularly hard hit.

Police say live power lines are down across the area and open gas lines pose a further risk.
