 Modoc Hall at Sacramento State is still drying out after a broken pipe flooded parts of all four floors in the building last week.  

On Wednesday, large driers pumped hot air through 30-foot long hoses into the second floor of Modoc Hall.  Downstairs, crews have removed some of the carpet and some of the drywall.

The leak started on the top floor sometime Thursday night. It wasn't discovered until Friday morning.

Angela Rader with University Enterprises says 50 people work in the building, but many telecommute.

"Some of the employees to be effected are some with the USGS, Fish and Wildlife employees as well as I think some students that are working with an annual giving fund and then the Java City is closed for very temporary."

The school does not have a cost estimate of the damage nor does it have an  estimate of how long it might take to repair the damage.
