Big Apple rain showers flood the Fifth Avenue Apple Store
Workers mop up at the Fifth Avenue Apple Store following a flood
The flood started at 8am and by 10am, most of the store had been mopped up with the exception of a 40 to 45 foot section which was roped off. Despite the flooding, the store never closed as workers scrambled to cover up the electronics. At one end of the store, a long table with Apple iPads was covered with plastic to protect the slates from getting ruined.
One employee at the store complained that the repairs made last year to the store's roof were done incorrectly and the flooding on Wednesday was the direct result of that construction.
