NEW ORLEANS - Louisiana State University's dental school in New Orleans is closed because the main building's basement flooded over the weekend, shutting down the computer network and phones.
  
LSU Health Sciences Center spokeswoman Leslie Capo says in a news release that heavy rains Saturday left 1½ feet of water in the basement. She said the school and main clinic would remain closed Tuesday but hope to reopen Wednesday.
  
Dean Henry Gremillion says a clinic remaining open sees 15 to 20 patients a day compared to 300 to 400 a day at the main clinic.
  
He says the dental school is moving the computer and phone equipment to an above-ground annex that is expected to open in January.
