Five found dead in an Oklahoma town after tornadoes ripped through the Midwest; three of those under the age of 10, ABC News reports.

The storm hit just past midnight Sunday in Woodward, about 140 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. The destruction included 89 homes and 13 businesses, said Alan Riffel, city manager, reports the Boston Globe.

Frank Hobie and his 5 and 7 year-old daughters were killed when the tornado hit their
mobile home, Oklahoma medical examiner spokeswoman Amy Elliot told The Associated Press, reports ABC News.

Just a few miles away, Darren Juul and his ten year old daughter also died when the tornado struck their home, ABC News reports.

According to officials, 29 additional people were injured and taken to Woodward Regional Hospital.
