By The Associated Press

WOODWARD, Okla. (AP) ' Officials say three children were among the five people killed when a tornado ripped through a northwest Oklahoma town and destroyed dozens of homes.

The tornado hit just after midnight Sunday in Woodward, about 140 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. City Manager Alan Riffel says 89 homes and 13 businesses were destroyed.

State medical examiner spokeswoman Amy Elliot says a man named Frank Hobie and his two daughters, ages 5 and 7, died after the tornado hit their mobile home park.



She says the other victims were Darren Juul and a 10-year-old girl who died when the home they were in a few miles away was hit.

The men's ages and the children's names haven't been released.

Elliot says a critically injured child was air lifted to a Texas hospital.
