Water Main Break Causes Hospital And Traffic Problems

St. Louis, MO (KTRS)  A huge water main break is to blame for knocking out power at Barnes Jewish Hospital and snarling traffic on Kingshighway.

The 12-inch water main break happened Wednesday night outside of the hospital. Water got into the basement of Queeny Tower and shorted out some of the electrical systems. This prompted hospital staff to move about 134 patients from the tower to the main hospital building.

Two to three feet of water flooded a section of Kingshighway, shutting down the roadway for a period of time. Kingshighway is back open, but crews are still making repairs.
