At around 6:45 p.m, an alarm went off at Harnwell signaling the start of a flood due to a broken sprinkler. Residential services worked hours to clear the flooded halls and rooms, starting with the seventh floor and working their way down. Students utilized nearby trashcans as makeshift water collectors in their rooms to mitigate the flooding as they waited for assistance from the school.The water eventually reached the mezzanine, with tiles collapsing from the ceiling. Students who wished to be relocated for the night were accommodated by the school, as many must study for finals happening in the coming days. An article on the situation can be found here.
