WASHINGTON (AP) - The George Washington Hospital says the extreme court weather caused leaking pipes on two floors to flood, affecting 33 patient rooms.

A spokesman says it happened about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday on the fourth and six floors at the D.C. Hospital. He says the hospital relocated 23 patients to other rooms in the hospital.

The hospital, including the emergency department, remains open and all elective surgical procedures, as well as the cardiac catheterization lab and radiology procedures are running normally.
