Flood at Royal Winnipeg Ballet

Recommended Posts

The RWB building was badly damaged by a major flood that occurred Saturday, August 22.

The flood water has since been traced back to a broken toilet in the third floor physiotherapy room. It pumped water out at full strength for nearly 30 hours before it was detected. Hallways, offices, and important studio space were all under water.

"It ran through the building third floor, the second floor, into the top of the parking garage, where the ceiling came down from the weight of the water," said RWB Executive Director Jeff Herd.

Oh damn -- I remember when Houston Ballet's basement (where they stored sets and costumes) was flooded. And the Graham Company had just moved a chunk of their stuff into a building that was pummeled by Hurricane Sandy. Those were storm-related, but water is water as far as damage is concerned.
