OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma's medical examiner's office says a tornado outbreak in the Oklahoma City suburbs killed five people.

A number of tornadoes touched down west and southeast of Oklahoma City during the Friday afternoon rush hour. The dead include a mother and baby found near Union City and another person at El Reno.

Hospitals in the area say dozens of people were hurt, five critically.

Friday's tornadoes struck an area north and northwest of Moore, where a top-of-the-scale EF5 tornado killed 24 people last week.
