A heavy rain Tuesday afternoon caused some problems at Clinton's Warner Hospital.

C-E-O Paul Skowron told Regional Radio News that some 3 inches of rain came down in that area of the city.  The storm sewers couldn't handle that much rain in a short time, so the drains outside the main entrance, and the drain outside the emergency room door, all turned into gushers.

As a result, water seeped into both the reception area and the emergency room.

Hospital crews were able to begin clean-up immediately after the rain ended, and ServPro of Clinton was then called into do the heavy clean-up and de-humidify the area.

Skowron hopes that all will be back to normal in that area of Warner Hospital in a few days.  Both the reception area and the emergency room continue to function as normal.
