Burst pipe leads to flooding in NH library
NORTH HAMPTON, N.H.—A burst pipe affected by sub-freezing temperatures over the weekend has left about two inches of water on the floor of the public library in North Hampton, N.H.
No books were damaged but carpets were waterlogged and there's been some damage to ceiling tiles.
Town Administrator Steve Fournier tells the Portsmouth Herald (http://bit.ly/yb7qCz) the library could stay closed for up to a week.
The damage was discovered by cleaning crews Monday night.
Town Building Inspector Richard Maybe believes the wind entered the building through tiny spaces in the walls and caused the pipe to freeze and burst in the kitchen area of the Atlantic Area building.
