ME identifies Sunday victims

NORMAN — One of the injured storm victims taken to Norman Regional Hospital on Sunday evening has died, raising the death toll from Sunday’s storm to two.

The State Medical Examiner’s Office identified the two people who are confirmed to have been killed during Sunday’s storms as 79-year-old Glen Irish and 76-year-old Billy Hutchinson. Both men were from Shawnee.

It was unclear Monday which one was at Norman Regional.

Two of the injured storm victims remained hospitalized Monday morning at Norman Regional Hospital, according to Kelly Wells, media relations coordinator.

Wells said 11 patients were taken to the hospital from far eastern Cleveland County. Eight of them were treated and released and two were admitted overnight. One of them was in serious condition and one was in fair condition Monday morning.

Statewide, besides the two deaths, 21 people have been injured.
