Studio B Water Leak

The leak was caused by the roof air conditioning unit. WMUL's studios are on the top floor of the communications building.
Most items in the studio were damaged, including the board.
Not even the microphone was spared from water damage.
The studio was promptly gutted. Here's the view looking toward the outer hallway.

Marshall, though, would go back to its locker room dejected and disappointed at its loss.
