Feb 29, 2012

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.
