A Florida hotel is on the brink of being closed due to a watermain break caused by flooding caused by the coronavirus.
A statement from the Leonidas Resort Hotel in the Tampa Bay area said the watermain broke early on Monday, and the hotel was forced to evacuate.
“Leonidas Resort was informed by the city of Tampa that the Leonias Water Treatment Plant, which supplies the hotel with drinking water, was unable to maintain a safe level of pressure to prevent further flooding,” the statement read.
“The hotel will remain closed indefinitely as repairs are made to the water system.”
We are working diligently to make sure that the hotel is able to reopen at the earliest opportunity.
“While the Leonis water treatment plant is operating normally, the water quality is not safe enough to handle the additional flooding expected in the coming days.”
Leonidas Beach Resort was built in 1875 and is known for its popular nightlife, including live music.
It was a popular spot for the Presidents in the 1960s and 70s.
The hotel is located on the outskirts of the Tampa International Airport and is the oldest in the state.
