The state medical examiner’s office says 37 people have been killed in Oklahoma, and the death toll is expected to rise.

In addition, officials at two hospitals say they’re treating nearly 60 patients, including more than a dozen children, after a massive tornado hit suburban Oklahoma City. Integris Southwest Medical Center spokeswoman Brooke Cayot said 10 of 37 patients being treated at that facility Monday are listed in critical condition. Twelve are in serious and 15 others are listed in fair or good condition. Five of the patients are children, including two who came from the Plaza Towers Elementary School, where an Associated Press photographer saw several children being pulled from the rubble. Cayot could not confirm the children’s conditions. Spokesman Scott Coppenbarger says another 20 patients of various ages are being treated at OU Medical Center. He says eight of them are children.
