OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma City area hospitals are reporting critically injured patients after a deadly tornado that killed at least five people struck the metro area.

Integris Health System spokeswoman Brooke Cayot (KAY’-ott) says three of the system’s hospitals received close to 50 patients and that five are in critical condition and one of those critically injured is a child.

Mercy spokeswoman Rachel Wright says the hospital took in four patients — all in stable condition.

Two of those critically injured were in vehicles that were on Interstate 40 west of Oklahoma City when they were caught in the tornado.
