YUKON, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say more than 100 people were injured during a burst of severe storms and tornadoes on Friday night.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health reported Saturday that Oklahoma City-area hospitals treated 104 people. More than half of those were people who had been cut or pierced.

Ten people died during the storm, which struck the Oklahoma City area during rush hour, trapping many people in their cars along Interstate 40.

The National Weather Service reported Friday evening that ``several'' tornadoes rolled across the prairie. The official number of tornadoes has not yet been determined.
