Leaking roof causes Fifth Avenue Apple Store to flood

retail-fifth-ave-pr1The famous Fifth Avenue Apple Store in New York City, you know, the glass cube one, has sprung a leak in its roof, and therefore flooded. According to a report from the New York Post, a leaking roof made for an interesting morning over in NYC for these Apple employees. Around 8AM, the report states, water began flooding the west side of the store, and employees began working to remove the water as quickly as possible while around 15 customers were present. One of the employees working claimed that the new renovations done recently was a cause of the flooding:

It’s because of the construction they did last year on the roof,” the worker said. “They didn’t do it right. There are large flat stones up there [that you walk across as you go into the store]. And with the heavy rain this morning, [the water] came through.

A large section of the store was blocked off because of the water leaking in, but the store did remain open and went about semi-normal business. No one is quite sure on the exact cause of the leak, as Apple has yet to comment on it. Harm to the actual electronics in the store was minimal, however, according to a few of the people that witnessed the poor happenings.
