A likely tornado killed at least two people as it destroyed a motel, roared through a nearby mobile home park and caused significant damage in the Oklahoma City area, officials said Sunday.

El Reno Mayor Matt White said during a news conference that "there have been two fatalities at this point in time," adding that officials are currently working to notify relatives.

White said search and rescue efforts are continuing.
