Last week Senior Citizen’s of Kodiak Incorporated was in the news for receiving state-wide recognition for their services. This week the organization is dealing with flood damage from a broken sprinkler system at the Senior Center.
Executive Director Pat Branson described what happened last Saturday when Kodiak temperatures dipped down to single digits:
— (Senior Sprinkler 1 "Well last week … wasn’t a fire.")
Branson went on to describe the extent of the damage.
— (Senior Sprinkler 2 "The water damage … we’re working.")
She said an outpouring of support by local businesses and agencies helped turn the situation around.
— (Senior Sprinkler 3 "We had the … on my office.")
Branson is choosing to look at the positive side of the sprinkler situation. She said that insurance will probably cover the repairs.
— (Senior Sprinkler 4 "Well, as my … provide our programs.")
The source of the problem was a five-by-five inch T-shaped pipe that was insulated, but burst as a result of the low temperatures. The dollar figure for the damage is not yet known.
