Two water leaks have caused significant damage to buildings in Texas and Florida.
A water main break in Mansfield, Texas, left a daycare center damaged beyond repair. An incident at Leah's Little Ones daycare center prompted Leah Corrigan, the center's owner, to permanently close her doors after much of the building was flooded on August 12, adding that she lost everything from cubbies and kid's toys to her own personal belongings, the Sun Chronicle reported.
"It's a lot of money to replace that, and parents are leaving, so if parents are leaving and I've got no kids in here, how am I going to afford the bills?" Corrigan said, the source reported. "It's like a snowball effect, I guess is what you'd call it."
The flood also temporarily closed At Health Through Hands Professional Massage Therapy, located in the same building, after it sustained minor damages, the source reported.
Another flood in Miami Beach, Florida, might increase the water bill of an apartment building, but that's the least of their worries.
Residents said a water leak from the top floor of the complex caused damage throughout the building, even reaching the lobby on the bottom floor. According Fox affiliate WSVN, a toilet overflowed because the valves were broken, causing water to leak for nearly three hours.
