Pipe Bursts in Notre Dame Library
The AP reports that a frozen pipe burst and flooded three floors of Notre Dame's Hesburgh Library, causing damage to some 1,500 books. "The flooding damaged parts of the economics and music collections on the second floor and reached the rare books and special collections areas in the basement, but caused minimal damage to those collections. Wet books were opened and placed next to table and floor fans. The cost estimate of the damaged is not yet available," according to a university press release.
