An implant scheduled at the Medical Center was performed for a little girl at the HealthPlex in Norman after the implant was recovered from the Moore hospital’s remains.
NRHS staff is working to salvage anything that can be saved.
“One piece of equipment that has been recovered in working order is the new MRI machine,” Hopkins said.
NRHS is currently operating a general store for the 132 employees affected by the May 19 and 20 tornadoes. The store is open at the Porter Campus and all merchandise is free to qualifying employees.
“We’re doing everything we can to take care of them,” Whitaker said.
Approximately 132 people were treated with storm-related injuries at either Norman Regional Hospital or the HealthPlex. Not all were admitted, Wells said.
Four remain hospitalized.
“Cleveland County was extremely heavily impacted by tornadoes that come through on Sunday and Monday,” said County Commissioner Darry Stacy, who referenced Little Axe, Newalla and Pecan Valley in the east and Moore in the north portion of Cleveland County.
“It’s unreal. You get the full impact of it each and every day that you drive back into it,” Stacy said.
All three commissioners have worked in partnership with local, state and federal agencies, he said.
A recovery center has opened at Little Axe Elementary school where those affected by the tornadoes get help from a “multitude of different agencies,” Stacy said.
County and contracted crews will continue to pick up debris in the affected areas.
County Clerk Tammy Belinson said free certified copies of property records are available at her office to people affected by the tornadoes.
Undersheriff Rhett Burnett said an unknown volunteer showed up in a parking lot of a Moore retail store in the affected area and repaired first responder tires at no charge. Sheriff’s deputies were among the first on the scene in both east Cleveland County on Sunday and in Moore on Monday afternoon.
