OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said a mother and child were killed as tornadoes moved through Oklahoma City.

Highway Patrol Trooper Betsy Randolph said troopers found the bodies near a vehicle along Interstate 40 west of the city Friday.

Tornadoes slammed Oklahoma City and its suburbs, crumbling cars and tractor-trailers.

The broad storm hit during the evening rush hour, causing havoc on I-40, a major artery connecting suburbs east and west of the city.

To the south, winds approaching 80 mph were forecast for Moore, where a top-of-the-scale EF5 tornado killed 24 on May 20.
