IDABEL, Okla. (AP) — Residents in southeastern Oklahoma and northeastern Texas began assessing damage and working to recover on Saturday after tornadoes tore through the region and killed at least two people.

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt toured the town of Idabel Saturday where buildings were flattened and a 90-year-old man was killed in nearby Pickins.

In Morris County Texas, County Judge Doug Reeder said one person died as a result of the storm.

Oklahoma authorities say a 6-year-old girl drowned and a 43-year-old man is missing after their vehicle was swept off a bridge near Stilwell but the death has not yet been officially attributed to the storm that also produced hail from Dallas to northwestern Arkansas.
