OSU students allowed to return to dorms after leak

COLUMBUS, Ohio - More than 1,100 Ohio State University students evacuated from their dorm rooms because of a water leak can now return to their residences.

An underground water line failure forced the school to close Park-Stradley Hall on Sunday night, and the students had to seek other accommodations.

The university on Wednesday said the building passed all of the necessary safety inspections after crews removed water from the sub-basement and repaired the facility's electrical system.

But the school has told students in the dorm that hot water service and drinkable water will likely take an additional couple days to restore.
