Branson hospital treats over 30 after tornado
A hospital in Branson treated 32 people in the hours after a tornado hit the tourist destination.
A spokeswoman for Skaggs Regional Medical Center says most of those treated early Tuesday suffered only cuts and bruises. Six of the injured were still being treated about 8 a.m. Tuesday.
One person who was injured when a roof collapsed was transferred to a Springfield hospital.
Spokeswoman Michelle Leroux says the hospital's urgent care department treated four people for minor injuries.
The hospital was not damaged. Leroux says power was out at two non-clinical buildings but otherwise the hospital is operating normally.
