    “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.”
    Decatur experienced a water main break around 11 p.m. Monday that left the entire city without water, forcing hospital officials to implement their disaster preparedness plan.
