Dania 9/9/19 Posted on November 9, 2019 at 04:05:55 PM by benny b
Just a quick update on the situation here at Dania. This afternoon minutes before the game one post time a sprinkler in the gym on the second floor of the Jai-alai area went off and flooded the whole second floor. As a result, the whole first floor locker room, players cage, training room and lounges were flooded and ceiling tiles were falling. The fire department came and shut off the water and are in the process of Shutting off all power in that area. Once the fire department has done their job the cleaning and restoration company can come in and start extracting water. They said that this process should take about 6 to 8 hours as they dry everything and set up the blowers and dehumidifiers. As of this moment, the matinee and evening for Saturday have been canceled. I will be here at 8 AM tomorrow morning to assess the locker room and see if it would be possible for us to play the matinee tomorrow.
As of 4 PM the casino area is still closed and nobody has been allowed back into the building. The fire department will make a determination when the casino will reopen but at that point the Jai-alai area will still be closed.
I’m still not sure if the casinos will be open at 5:15 this afternoon for the celebration of life for Dale Martinek.
I’ll know more about the Sunday performance in the morning... Replies:
