State homeland security officials say Indiana hospitals treated at least 77 people who were injured in last week's deadly tornadoes.

The agency said Wednesday that the 77 tornado-related injuries the hospitals have reported do not include people who were treated by first responders or other medical personnel in the field.

Wednesday's update on the tornadoes that killed 13 Indiana residents also said officials estimate that last Friday's tornadoes left behind one million cubic yards of green debris such as trees limbs and 100 cubic yards of regular debris in hard-hit Clark County in southern Indiana.

That initial estimate does not include damage to the town of Henryville's high school.
