Flooding forces Ala. Legislature out of Statehouse

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Flooding at the Alabama Statehouse has forced the Legislature to move to chambers in the historic old Capitol to conduct business.

It is the first time in 23 years that the House and Senate will handle regular legislative work in the Capitol.

The basement of the Statehouse is flooded and forced the Statehouse staff to turn off the electricity in the building as a safety precaution.
