Flooding displaces residents of building at senior facility

January 3, 2019

TAYLORSVILLE, Utah (AP) — Approximately 100 residents of a senior living center in a Salt Lake City suburb were displaced by flooding caused by a broken pipe early Thursday morning.

Evacuated residents initially stayed in a lobby in another building at the facility in Taylorsville and most were able to return to their units in the facility by late Thursday morning. However, about a dozen went to hotels.

The building is new and officials are investigating whether cold weather conditions caused the break in the pipe that started the flooding on the fifth floor.

No injuries were reported.
