    King Edward VII Memorial Hospital: new acute care wing


Both the old and the new wing of the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital have been breached by Hurricane Gonzalo, the Emergency Measures Organisation announced at 9.30pm, resulting in leaks and water damage in the facility.

Police spokesman Dwayne Caines reported that the hospital had sustained roof damage during the storm — but said that contingency plans for such an event had been enacted by KEMH staff.

Meanwhile, The Royal Gazette has received reports of large numbers of what appear to be emergency lights in the vicinity of nearby Crow Lane.
