Every building in the 19-building state Capitol complex sustained some kind of water damage in storms on Monday.
Water flooded the Jim Thorpe building, forcing many employees who work for the Office of Personnel Management to vacate. Water dripped from the roof of leased space at the Lincoln Plaza. Water in an electrical box at the Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry shut down the building for the day.
Workers stood knee-deep in water that flooded the tunnel in the Sequoyah Building. The state Capitol building was relatively unscathed. Some minor leaks were reported, according to officials with the Department of Central Services.
Randy Ross, deputy director of the facilities division of the Department of Central Services said it could take several days before the cost of repairs is known.
