In addition to the 24 people killed in Monday’s massive twister, two people died elsewhere in the state in storms Sunday, the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management said.

“All people thought missing have been accounted for at this time,” Gov. Mary Fallin said.

In all, 377 people have been treated for injuries as a result of this week’s storms, the Department of Emergency Management said. It did not say how many were injured Monday. Fallin said on Twitter that the 377 were injured in the tornado Monday. However, a hospital in Shawnee, Oklahoma, said it treated 11 people injured in the tornado there Sunday.
