(AP)  Two men were killed and one remains missing after a tornado ripped through a tourist resort in northwestern Ontario.

Provincial police said Friday all three men were from Oklahoma. The bodies of two of them were found in the water shortly after the storm passed through Fisherman's Cove on Lac Seul, about 9 miles (15 kilometers) south of Ear Falls, Ontario.

The storm struck just before 9 p.m. Thursday. It also injured at least five people at the resort.

Environment Canada meteorologist Geoff Coulson said the storm was one of several severe thunderstorm cells across northwestern Ontario.
