Damage Evident Throughout the Building

The toxic, virulent gasses found an outlet into every room of the hospital as a result of the explosion, which forced the fumes into the pipe tunnel and up the pipe ducts. The plaster ceilings were utterly destroyed in the 4th floor rooms, and the fumes deposited a yellowish-brown color everywhere throughout the hospital.
