Storm resistant windows installed at Ocean Springs Hospital

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - Windows damaged by Hurricane Katrina are being replaced at Ocean Springs Hospital. Over the next several weeks, workers will install new, storm resistant windows throughout the hospital.

The new windows can withstand winds of more than 145 miles per hour. The darker tint of the windows makes them more energy efficient as well.

The project cost $1.6 million, but the hospital's share is only $81,000. That's because a hazard mitigation grant from FEMA and the state is picking up the majority of the tab.
