Businesses in the basement of the old Eaton's building are cleaning up after a broken water main caused extensive flooding.
Three-to-four inches of water covered the entire 50,000 square-foot basement of the building.
City crews were able to repair the break, and clean-up crews have been able to remove all of the water.
Dave Karasiewicz is the director of the Definitely Superior Art Gallery. He has no estimates on the amount of damage.
Other businesses that spoke with Thunder Bay Television News reporters said they didn't sustain much damage and mostly have a big mess to clean up.
Karasiewicz added that it will take about six weeks to clean up the gallery and repair the damage.
The gallery is normally closed in August, and he does plan to have the business back open for September.
