NYU Langone Medical Center began evacuating about 260 patients, carrying a few of them down 15 flights of stairs to ambulances ready to take them to the safety of other hospitals. On Monday, the hospital’s basement, lower floors and elevator shafts filled with 10 to 12 feet of water, and the hospital lost its power.

The emergency generators did turn on, but two hours later and about 90% of that power went out, and the hospital decided to evacuate patients. The evacuation was completed by 11 a.m. Tuesday, according to a hospital statement.
