Spokeswoman Amy Elliott said today that the death of Kathryn Begay pushed the death toll to 25. Begay's home in the town of Moore was destroyed and she suffered a fractured skull. Officials say she suffered a pair of strokes after the storm and died last Thursday. A tornado that struck El Reno on May 31 killed 22 people, including 14 adults and eight children. Many victims drowned due to heavy rain from that storm.
