LSU Dental School, Clinic In New Orleans To Reopen Today After Flood

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Louisiana State University's dental school and main clinic in New Orleans are reopening after a weekend flood damaged electrical equipment.

         LSU Health Sciences Center-New Orleans spokeswoman Leslie Capo says both resume normal operations Wednesday.

         She says about a million gallons (3.8 million liters) of water had to be pumped out before repairs could begin.

         The school and clinic were closed Monday and Tuesday.

         Capo says in a news release that electrical damage included power for air conditioning, operating dental and x-ray equipment, telephones and the computer network.

         An annex including above-ground mechanical and electrical equipment is expected to open in January. LSU says Federal Emergency Management Agency grants are paying to replace basement and ground-floor space that flooded in Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
