A storm that dropped tornadoes in the Oklahoma City area brought high winds and heavy rains to the suburb that was recently hit by a deadly twister.

Forecasters said winds could top 80 mph when they move through Friday night.

Television cameras and radar images showed a strong storm approaching Moore, where a top-of-the-scale EF5 tornado on May 20 killed 24 people.

A supercell thunderstorm produced a number of tornadoes as it hit suburbs west and east of Oklahoma City for several hours Friday afternoon. Moore wasn't hit in the main wave, but winds and rain moved toward the community just before sunset.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported numerous injuries in Friday's storms.
