Water main break shuts down Duluth hotel


The Radisson in downtown Duluth will stay closed through the weekend after a water line break flooded the hotel and displaced 80 guests.

The Associated Press reports the break occurred Wednesday night, sending water rushing into a tunnel under the street and into the basement of the hotel.

Radisson general manager tells the Duluth News Tribune that the flood may have impacted the building's electricity, all the windows were dark Thursday night. The water also flooded a basement elevator, which may be a longer repair.

Guests were moved a few blocks away to the nearby Holiday Inn and Sheraton.

A private contrator severed the service line connecting the hotel's water supply at a nearby construction site.
