OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Officials at two hospitals say they're treating more than 120 patients, including about 70 children, after a massive tornado hit suburban Oklahoma City.

OU Medical Center spokesman Scott Coppenbarger says the hospital and a nearby children's hospital are treating approximately 85 patients, including 65 children, after Monday afternoon's twister.

He said their conditions ranged from minor injuries to critical.

Integris Southwest Medical Center spokeswoman Brooke Cayot (KAY'-ot) says 10 of 37 patients being treated at that facility Monday are listed in critical condition. Twelve are in serious and 15 others are listed in fair or good condition.

Cayor says five of the patients at Integris are children, including two who came from the Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Okla.
