OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Hospital officials say they've treated more than 200 patients, including dozens of children, since a tornado hit an Oklahoma City suburb.

Dozens of patients remained hospitalized Tuesday following Monday's storms that health officials said led to more than 200 injuries.

Norman Regional Hospital spokeswoman Melissa Herron said 20 of the more than 100 patients her hospital treated remained hospitalized.

Spokeswoman Brooke Cayot (KAY'-ot) said about 20 of the 90 patients seen at Integris Southwest Medical Center also remained at the hospital.

OU Medical Center spokesman Scott Coppenbarger says his hospital has treated 93 people, including 59 children, since a round of storms Sunday. Twenty patients remained hospitalized Tuesday.

St. Anthony Hospital spokeswoman Sandra Payne says her hospital and affiliated facilities have seen 36 patients. All were transferred or being released.
