Death toll reaches 14 in Friday's Oklahoma tornadoes

The death toll from deadly tornadoes that struck Oklahoma on Friday has risen by one to 14, with a child added to a tally that now includes nine adults and five children, the state's chief medical examiner said on Monday.

Six of the victims remained unidentified, said Amy Elliott, a spokeswoman for the medical examiner's office.

Friday's spate of tornadoes landed just 11 days after a massive EF5 tornado, the most powerful rating, tore into Oklahoma City and its suburb of Moore, killing 24 people. Moore sustained limited damage in Friday's storms.
