DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - The Radisson in downtown Duluth is expected to remain closed through the weekend after a water line broke and flooded parts of the hotel's basement causing its guests to find other accommodations.
The break occurred Wednesday night and flooded the tunnel under the street leading to the public library. About 80 guests were moved to the nearby Holiday Inn and Sheraton.
Duluth water supply manager Howard Jacobson says the line that broke was not a city line but the hotel's own service line running into the building. Jacobson says it appears a private contractor somehow severed the line, triggering the flood and cutting off water to the hotel.
