Hospital is flooded - level 2

Hospital is flooded - level 2

22-08-2014 07:00

A US hotel’s security camera filmed the moment floodwater crashed through windows. Tables and chairs in the cafeteria were smashed, and people ran up a staircase.

Nobody was injured, but the hospital dining room was damaged a lot. The local sewer system caused the flood. The sewer system was completely filled with water, and it could not hold any more.

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
