National archives in Ottawa to reopen after flood

Is there anything that strikes fear into the hearts of archivists than Exploding Pipes? (Other than Sasquatch attacks of course) The main Library and Archives Canada building is to reopen Wednesday after a burst water pipe flooded part of the downtown Ottawa building early Tuesday morning, damaging some 20th century books.
Ottawa firefighters arrived at the building shortly at about 2:30 a.m. after water began leaking onto the second floor.
