Kurtz says investigators have not yet determined exactly how far the tornado traveled on the ground or how wide it was.

Kurtz says an EF1 tornado struck in southwest Oklahoma City and EF0 tornadoes struck on both the city's southeast side and in Moore -- where a deadly tornado hit on May 20 and killed 24 people.

Kurtz says survey teams will return to the areas Sunday and Monday.

Two other adults were killed driving into high water areas, caused by flooding related to Friday's storms.
