The Oklahoma Medical Examiner's Office Tuesday confirms the death toll from Friday's tornadoes and floods has risen to 19 people.

Those deceased include six children and 13 adults. The 19th victim was not named, but the agency said the victim was an adult.

Storms that swept through the Oklahoma City area on Friday generated an EF5 tornado and violent flash floods. The tornado was also the widest one ever recorded -- 2.6 miles long.

Office spokeswoman Amy Elliott didn't indicate whether the latest death was in an area that was flooded or hit by tornadoes.
