(ABC 6 NEWS) -- A brief but potent storm moved through Olmsted county early Thursday morning.
Earlier this morning, heavy rains caused some flooding in the subway level and lobby level of Mayo Clinic's Charlton Building. Patients scheduled for morning laboratory tests at the Charlton Building or appointments at Charlton Subway Desk R were redirected and some appointments were rescheduled.
At this point, most of the water has been removed, but subway access is expected to remain limited until early Friday morning. Ongoing clean-up is expected for the next one-to-two weeks with minimal disruption to patients. We encourage patients and staff to avoid affected areas until clean-up work is complete.
We're told in some places in and around Rochester, at least eight vehicles were stalled in water up to their headlights.
