PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The William Pitt Union at University of Pittsburgh flooded Sunday morning after a water line broke.
According to Pitt communications manager Sharon Blake, a water pipe “malfunctioned” on the mezzanine floor and the building had to be shut down.

Blake says repairs were made immediately.
There was some damage to the lower and main floors of the building, but it is scheduled to reopen Monday.
