The Oklahoma state medical examiner’s office has revised the death toll from the Moore tornado to 24 people, including seven children, though more victims are expected to be found today. A spokeswoman with the medical examiner’s office says that some of the victims had been counted twice in the early chaos of the storm’s aftermath. Authorities said initially that as many as 51 people were dead, including 20 children. According to the Associated Press, more than 120 people have been treated at hospitals, including about 50 children.
