January 9, 2014

    In an odd bit of juxtaposition, the major water loss which struck Decatur on Tuesday came at the same time as some of the coldest weather city residents have ever seen. Ever.
    So many people, upon arising that morning and finding no water coming from their taps, thought their water pipes had frozen — as they had been warned often could happen in the days leading up to 36 or so consecutive hours of below-zero temperatures plus wind-chill readings of 40 or so below.

Hospital forced to adapt when water supply lost

January 9, 2014

    “It was a crazy day,” said Susan Sefton, community outreach director at Adams Memorial Hospital.
    Sefton was referring to Wednesday, a day after a city water main break that left Decatur without water, and how hospital personnel were coping with that unique scenario.
    “We had a plan in place,” Sefton said. “I feel sorry for all our maintenance personnel, who are working hard to provide water to multiple areas of the hospital.”
