A leak in the ceiling of the Fifth Avenue Apple Store opened up and sent water flooding into the store this morning, according to the New York Post.

"I was down there at 5:45am because I had trouble backing up my computer and everyone started yelling," customer Errol Rappaport, 68, told The Post. "There was a leak then--boom--the whole thing opened up out of the ceiling. Then everyone started scrambling, moving tables...It didn't look like there were any electrical issues otherwise they would have evacuated the store."

The flooding began around 8 a.m. and workers immediately began working to remove the water. "It didn't look like any electronics were damaged," said Rappaport.

"It's because of the construction they did last year on the roof," the worker said. "They didn't do it right. There are large flat stones up there [that you walk across as you go into the store]. And with the heavy rain this morning, [the water] came through."

Most of the water had been cleaned up by 10 a.m.; however, a 40-45-ft section of the store was still blocked off.
