Burst Pipe Floods Part of Tysons Corner Center

A burst pipe has closed a handful of stores in Tysons Corner Center mall.

Around 11 a.m., water spilled into stores in the Nordstrom wing of the mall. The Aveda and White House Black Market both faced substantial water accumulation and were evacuated.

Frozen pipes, and subsequent bursts, are a common hazard of sudden temperature drops.

Janitorial staff are currently on scene cleaning the flooded areas, but an employee at Aveda said there store is likely to be closed for the remainder of the day. The damage to the stores has not yet been determined.

At one point, a delivery person came along with boxes of merchandise and asked whether or not to drop it off inside. The employee shrugged and pointed to the flooded store.
