OKLAHOMA CITY  -- The National Weather Service said it appears at least 34 tornadoes touched down in Oklahoma last week, including a run of at least one twister for four straight days.

Preliminary reports indicate that 24 of those tornadoes came May 10, including two in central Oklahoma that had wind speeds of between 166 mph and 200 mph. Two people died in Monday's outbreak.

Weather service meteorologist Doug Speheger said the 24-twister total was the fourth-highest single-day total in Oklahoma since official records began being kept in 1950. The 24-hour state record remains the 63 tornadoes that touched down between the afternoon of May 3, 1999, and 3 a.m. the next day.

There was one tornado in Oklahoma on Tuesday, two more on Wednesday and seven on Thursday.
