(CNN) -- Two people have died as a result of severe weather in and around Oklahoma City, a hospital official said. Integris Canadian Valley Hospital in Yukon received two fatalities and 14 patients, three of them critical, Integris Health's Brooke Cayot said.

Meanwhile, tens of thousands of people in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area, including the twister-ravaged community of Moore, were scrambling to get out of the way of at least four reported tornadoes on Friday.
