The Oklahoma Medical Examiner’s Office released new information about the victims of this week’s tornadoes.

Officials say the victims have been transported to the OCME facility in Oklahoma City, and the official confirmed number of deaths stands now at 24. Victims range in age from four months to 65 years.

There are 10 children confirmed killed in the storms, including two infants. Officials say all of the children have been identified.  The ME staff worked throughout the night and Tuesday in coordination with state and federal agencies to identify victims and document injuries.

All but one victim is positively identified. They are trying to notify the next of kin for eight victims.

The victims have been identified as:

Terri Long, 49
Megan Futrell, 29
Case Futrell, 4 mos.
Shannon Quick, 40
Syndee Vargas, 7 mos.
Karrina Vargas, 4
Jenny Neely, 38
Antonia Caneraria, 9
Kyle Davis, 8
Janae Hornsby, 9
Syndey Angle, 9
Emily Conatzer, 9
Nicolas McCabe, 9
Christopher Legg, 9
Cindy Plumlee, age unknown
Deanna Ward, age unknown

A tornado in Shawnee killed 79-year-old Glen Irish and 76-year-old Billy Hutchinson on Sunday.

An Oklahoma emergency management official says authorities still are working to find six adults who haven't been accounted for since the devastating tornado that tore through the Oklahoma City area earlier this week.

Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management Director Albert Ashwood said it wasn't known Wednesday whether those people had just "walked off" their properties or could still be found in the rubble.
