Tank Problem Causes Water Damage to City Hall

BUFFALO, NY - A giant holding tank that sits inside on top of City Hall caused a big mop up job on the 25th floor, which started leaking over the weekend.

The gusher sent water dripping down several flights of stairs and did some minor damage.

City Hall's observation deck will be closed through the end of the week so workers can plug the leak and get rid of the water.
