COLUMBUS, Ohio – A water main break beneath the Greater Columbus Convention Center prompted evacuations and the closure of a downtown road Wednesday morning.
A 12-inch water main located under the building broke, according to Rick Tilton of Columbus Public Utilities. Power to the building was turned off as crews worked to stop the flow of water.
High Street was closed in both directions between Nationwide and Goodale boulevards, police said.
