Here's the scoop from LDSChurchTemples.com:
The Chicago Illinois Temple will be closed until further notice due to water damage from a burst pipe located over the women's instruction room. The pipe, which froze and broke during the final weekend of December 2008, left one room extensively damaged and put four inches of water on the floor—ruining the carpet in the building.Many of us spend time and money preparing for the threat of fire, but water damage is much more widespread. It's amazing how much harm a little leak in a pipe can cause. Overflowing rivers or hurricane surges are vastly worse, of course. Water is one of the most dangerous elements we face - are you prepared?
Speaking of water damage, a few years ago I was sitting in my office at Kimberly-Clark working on my computer when it suddenly began raining - in my office. Streams of dirty brown water began rushing through the gaps in my tile ceiling. I was able to quickly protect my computer and move it to safety (next I protected my precious books). An old heating pipe had corroded and burst. An adjacent office faced much more severe damage in spite of our immediate efforts to reach maintenance and have the water shut off. Had it been under high pressure, it could have been really disastrous. If this had happened at night or on a weekend, I hate to think what several hours of undetected flooding could have done.
You probably all have fire alarms. Any of you have alarms that detect flooding or that alert you if your sump pump fails (for those with sump pumps)?
