Flood at Little Falls Library in Bethesda
I asked Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services spokesperson Pete Piringer if there had been a gas leak. Piringer said the basement level of the library had flooded, and the WSSC was called in. Pepco also had to send a crew to turn off power to the library.
Due to the after hours timing of the incident, I do not yet have a statement from Montgomery County Public Libraries regarding how the flood and resulting damage might impact the reopening of the library. Expected to reopen as early as this month, it's certainly possible that the new carpeting and possibly other upgrades had been installed by now. The library has been closed since July for renovations.
Stay tuned for more information as I receive it.
