Hospital ER re-opens after flood

A county hospital forced to close its emergency room because of floods, says it can take in new cases.

The emergency room in Jönköping was able to open as soon as the heating system started working again. But other non-urgent operations that were planned have been cancelled, to keep space available.

Patients had been taken to nearby hospitals in Eksjö and Värnamo, after a downpour that also hit a local shopping centre and caused power cuts in the local area.
