PHOENIX (AP) - Officials at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Phoenix say damage from a monsoon storm has been at least temporarily repaired and that the facility has resumed normal operations.

The Sept. 14 storm resulted in water leaks in 67 rooms, including 52 patient rooms, with a total of 90 beds being taken out of service at the. Carl T. Hayden Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Officials said interim repairs have been made to windows but that there needs to be a major window repair and replacement project. Planning for that is underway.

The storm damage resulted in patients being moved to other rooms, the hospital halting admissions and the emergency room diverting cases to other hospitals.

The emergency room is no longer diverting patients to other hospitals.
