Memorial reopens University Centre after flooding


Memorial University has reopened the University Centre at the St John’s campus after experiencing “massive” flooding. CBC reports that the flooding was caused by a sprinkler head that went off in a cooler. VOCM reports that witnesses saw water “flowing down the steps on the south side of the centre.” The building was evacuated on Saturday and closed to all except staff as custodial staff cleaned up the water. The extent of the damage is not reported, but the centre has since reopened for normal operations.
