Storms lead to 3 deaths in eastern Oklahoma

🕐 1 min read

DALLAS (AP) — Authorities say severe thunderstorms are responsible for the deaths of three people in eastern Oklahoma.

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Brooke Arbeitman says two teenage boys died of carbon monoxide poisoning late Sunday in Weleetka, about 80 miles east of Oklahoma City.

She says the 14- and 15-year-old boys were using a portable gas generator in a travel trailer after the storms knocked out power in the area.

Arbeitman says the father of the younger boy went to check on them early Monday and discovered their bodies.

Emergency management officials say another person died late Sunday night when a tree was blown onto a mobile home near Valliant, about 170 miles southeast of Oklahoma City.
