A Norfolk hospital continues to rely on a temporary emergency department set up after last weekend's storms flooded part of the facility.

A statement from Faith Regional Health Services says its insurer continues to assess the water and hail damage, but an initial survey indicates 15,000 square feet of walls, flooring and cabinetry in its emergency department were flooded. Other areas of the property were also damaged.

Repairs are scheduled to begin Monday but it's not known how long they will take.

The hospital has said water seeped under the outside doors of its emergency department last Saturday, causing 4 feet of water to fill the halls and rooms of the department.

A temporary emergency department has been set up in the first floor of the hospital's new bed tower.
