Leak at Central Bank of Iceland

By Iceland Review

The Reykjavík Fire Department was called out to the Central Bank of Iceland shortly before midnight after water had begun leaking into the building’s hallways, according to RÚV. A malfunctioning fountain in the building’s entry was to blame. As a result, large amounts of water (we don’t have exact reports as to how many cubic meters per second) streamed all over the building’s hallways on the first floor and into an underground garage.

Despite the leak, damage was not extensive. Firefighters showed up with tank trucks and were able to pump out the water.

We’re happy to report that no information was leaked.
