CEO of Queen of the Valley Medical Center, Walt Mickens, says since the earthquake struck, 172 patients have been treated at the facility, with 13 patients admitted. He says most of the people were treated for lacerations and bruises:

"Mostly still bumps and bruises and cuts and lots of lacerations, we have had three patients that are in or heading to surgery now mostly orthopedic related injuries two fractured hips on the different patients, one fractured ankle," Mickens said. 

A child who was injured by a chimney was airlifted reportedly to UC Davis Medical Center for treatment.

So far, no fatalities have been reported in the quake.

60 people died during the last big quake in Northern California, Loma Prieta, in 1989 during the World Series.
