So far overnight we received 104 patients, about 30 of those patients came into the level one trauma center. Many more patients came through the emergency department. We received two teenagers.

I'm of the understanding that all hospitals received patients although I can't confirm what other hospitals receive. Do you have all the help you need right now? We do. Thankfully we're ready willing and trained for mass casualties. We have a full trauma team in house 24/7 around the clock. Typically not with this many patients.
