Central Phoenix library closed due to severe water damage

- Cleanup continues at a central Phoenix library after a storm caused severe water damage to the building.

The Burton Barr Central Library in Phoenix was damaged following a severe storm on Saturday when the Phoenix Fire Department says tiles on the roof were lifted and a sprinkler pipe was broken.

Up to 50 gallons of water per minute poured into the library for half an hour. Hundreds of drying fans and dehumidifiers were brought in to help dry things out.

There is no estimate on the damage or when the library will reopen.
