According to KFOR.com, the looters were stealing various items from the hospital.

In Moore, 51 people have been confirmed dead with another 120 injured.

The National Guard was reportedly called in to prevent further looting. The town is now under curfew.

Keli Cain, a spokeswoman for the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management, said that the small Moore Medical Center was evacuated and its patients were transferred to other hospitals.
