Source: CBS News

Another tornado touched down near Oklahoma City and is moving northeast, the National Weather Service confirmed, bringing more dangerous weather that has already claimed the lives of two people since Sunday.

The new twister is just one of several created by a storm system that swept through the nation's midsection Sunday and into Monday, with damage concentrated in central Oklahoma and Wichita, Kan. A tornado watch is in effect for northeastern Oklahoma Counties

Twenty-one injuries were reported.

On Monday spokeswoman Amy Elliot of the Oklahoma state medical examiner's office identified the two people confirmed dead from Sunday's storms as 79-year-old Glen Irish and 76-year-old Billy Hutchinson. Both men were from Shawnee.
