The residents of a Hutchinson assisted living complex will be out of their home for least two weeks while workers repair damage from flooding.

Water seeped into the Elm Grove Estates after heavy rains hit the area Sunday, forcing 104 residents to move other living situations. Shawn Lahr, an official with Emeritus, which operates Elm Grove, says about half of the residents are living with family. The others are at the Hutchinson Regional Medical Center or Golden Plains Rehabilitation Center.

Elm Grove staff is continuing to care for the residents.

The Hutchinson News reports about 100 workers are involved in efforts to dry out the complex. Lahr says they will work 24 hours a day, seven days a week until repairs are completed.
