3 still hospitalized in Norfolk after tornado

NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) — A spokeswoman for Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk says the hospital is still treating three people who were hurt in Monday's tornado, but their injuries aren't life-threatening.

Hospital marketing director Jacque Genovese said Tuesday that the hospital received 17 patients after the tornadoes swept through northeast Nebraska, destroying most of the town of Pilger. One patient died, and one was transferred to an Omaha hospital.

Genovese says three patients were still in the hospital's care for unspecified injuries. The rest have been discharged.
