(RNN) – Of the 24 killed in the EF-5 tornado that decimated Moore, OK, 10 are children - two of which are infants, according to a release by the Oklahoma City Medical Examiner's Office.

All the children have been identified. The ME's office is waiting to release the names of eight other people – with one yet to be positively identified – until next of kin can be notified.

The ages of those killed rage in age from 4 months old to 65. Case Futrell, 4 months old, and 7-month-old Sydnee Vargyas died of blunt force trauma to the head. The other children ranged in age from 4 to 9 years old.

The news release from the medical examiner does not say if the children killed were found Plaza Towers Elementary school, which took a direct hit.

Of the other eight children, six suffocated and two died from traumatic injuries.

Many died from "blunt force injuries" around the head or torso.

About 10,00 people and 2,400 homes were affected by the tornado that cut across 17 miles of Oklahoma and ranged from half-mile to two miles wide.
