SULPHUR, Okla. (KAKE) - A 4-month-old child is among those dead after an outbreak of violent tornadoes tore through Oklahoma on Saturday, ABC affiliate KOCO-TV reports.

Authorities are still assessing damage Sunday morning, and the extent of the damage caused by the tornado outbreak and the number of injuries have not been confirmed.

Hughes County Emergency management has confirmed that at least two people died after the tornado outbreak hit the town of Holdenville. One of the victims was a 4-month-old, and information about the other has not been released.

Authorities say the 4-month-old was pronounced dead after an overnight search for the child. They eventually found the infant, who was taken to the hospital but did not make it.

A report from the Storm Prediction Center in Norman shows that at least 16 tornadoes hit Oklahoma on Saturday, and that number is expected to increase. No ratings have been determined yet for any of the tornadoes.

Storm damage has been reported across the state, from northern Oklahoma down to the Red River.

In Sulphur, a town about 85 miles southeast of Oklahoma City, buildings have been leveled or significantly damaged, and flying debris impaled several vehicles.

Governor Kevin Stitt has released this statement:

"My prayers are with those who lost loved ones as tornadoes ripped through Oklahoma last night. Thank you to Oklahoma Emergency Management and those who have worked through the night to keep Oklahomans safe and have worked to clear debris and assess damage."
