(Moore, OK)  --  Medical officials in Oklahoma are revising the death toll from yesterday's tornado down to 24 confirmed victims.  Oklahoma City Medical Examiner's Office spokeswoman Amy Elliott says there may have been mistakes made in the chaos. 

Nine of those victims are children.  Elliot says she hopes the figures don't rise, but she expects them to.  There had been multiple reports of more than 90 dead.  She attributed that to a lot of confusion after the massive twister slammed into the community of Moore.
