Abbeville General evacuates patients due to electrical disruptions


ABBEVILLE, La. (KLFY)- Abbeville General was forced to evacuate five patients due to city power disruptions and an in-house emergency generator failure.

Back-up generators were being brought to the hospital that morning.

The emergency department is operable, but it may lose power as the day progresses dependent on city power outage.
