PITTSBURGH —A large water pipe apparently burst in a Downtown Pittsburgh structure.It was around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday that the pipe burst, sending water into the Stanwix Street Garage on the 600 block of Stanwix Street.
A Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 photojournalist saw water pouring down to the bottom of the garage.
The owner of the Avis Car Rental Store in the adjacent building said his store ended up being flooded.
“It sounded like a part of the building collapsed just a little bit,” said Alan Corrado. “I didn’t know if it was the apartment above me. But apparently, it was just the sound from the water pipe breaking that happened one or two floors below me on the 11th or 12th floor.”
Corrado said he doesn’t know if he’ll be able to open his business today because of the flooding.
