Hospitals Treat More Than 200 After Oklahoma Tornado

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Hospital officials say they've treated more than 200 patients, including over 70 children, since a tornado ripped through an Oklahoma City suburb.

Dozens of patients remained hospitalized Tuesday following Monday's tornado.

OU Medical Center spokesman Scott Coppenbarger says his hospital has treated 89 people, including 59 children. Sixteen patients, including 10 kids, remain hospitalized Tuesday. He said four other adults were treated after Sunday's storms and also remained hospitalized.

St. Anthony Hospital spokeswoman Sandra Payne says her hospital and two regional facilities have seen 36 patients, including 14 children. Three children were transferred elsewhere. All other patients there were being released.
