SAN DIEGO -- Damage from the most recent storm forced county officials to temporarily close the Rosecrans Health Services Complex Wednesday.
The facility at 3851 Rosecrans St. suffered water damage in some administrative areas and near a clinic from what was believed to be a leaky roof during Tuesday afternoon's downpours, the county's Craig Sturak told City News Service.
The building is also in a low-lying part of town that's prone to flooding during heavy rains, but Sturak said it wasn't clear if standing water also entered the building.
He said structural experts were examining the building today and will determine when the facility can reopen.
 Meanwhile, many of the services offered at Rosecrans can be obtained at other facilities.
Sexually transmitted disease and tuberculosis clinics are offered at the Central Region Public Health Center, 5202 University Ave. in San Diego; North Coastal Public Health Center, 104 South Barnes St. in Oceanside; and the South Region Public Health Center, 690 Oxford St. in Chula Vista.
Additional tuberculosis clinics are offered at the North Central Public Health Center, 5055 Ruffin Road in San Diego and the North Inland Public Health Center, 649 W. Mission Ave. in Escondido.
Days and times vary for each clinic. Details are available at or by calling 2-1-1.
Residents needing to handle vital records can visit the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office at 5570 Overland Ave.
