The evacuation of 38 long-term care residents to Allen County Regional Hospital went smoothly Tuesday night, as the threat of flood continues.
Residents of Windsor Place, located near Coon Creek at 600 E. Garfield, were evacuated around 7 p.m. The hospital offered seven beds to residents with greater health care needs. The remainder slept in recliners and pull-out sofas in the hospital?s Lynn Family Conference Room.
Two patients were brought to the hospital by ambulance; the rest came in vans.
