OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The death toll from tornadoes and strong storms last week in Oklahoma has risen to four people.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner previously said that one person died when the severe weather struck a mobile home park in Sand Springs last Wednesday.

The medical examiner’s office now says two people died after they were washed off a bridge in Webbers Falls.

A fourth person died in Norman when police say a man driving a pickup during the storm crashed into a utility pole.
