Water disaster at LA Courthouse

Experts estimated that nearly one million gallons of water gushed out of a broken water main and across the first floor of the Los Angeles Federal Courthouse before it found its way to the building’s basement. When the flooding stopped, much of the first-floor office space was severely damaged and the 70,000-square-foot basement had four feet of standing water. Lower locations, such as the elevator shaft and the building power vault, had much deeper water. To make matters worse, the flood-damaged power vault housed transformers that supplied power to the city for blocks around.
