Salvation Army sustains electrical damage
SPRINGFIELD (AP) — A Salvation Army shelter in Springfield has sustained significant water damage.
The Springfield News-Leader reports that the facility's roof began leaking so badly Saturday night that families living in the Family Enrichment Center were moved into a hotel.
Salvation Army development director Amanda Long says staff has since learned that the water damaged the electrical system and that the building will need to be gutted. She says it will take several weeks before the Salvation Army will be able to open its warming center.
