Heavy flooding caused damage to stores on the bottom floor of Penn Square Mall.

Sources tell News 9, officials plan to close the mall for the day while the situation is addressed. Crews have also shut off water to the building.

Several mall patrons have shared photos and video of the flooding on social media.

According to the Oklahoma City Fire Department, a water main burst in an 8-inch pipe running into the mall caused the flooding, which created about 3 to 5 inches of standing water pooling in areas on the bottom floor.

Officials say some merchandise was damaged, but so far the extent has not yet been released.

On Wednesday, July 5 the following statement was released by Penn Square Mall General Manager, Jeffrey Runnels:

Penn Square Mall closed early yesterday in order to remove water from sections of the lower level common area, and as a precaution following the break of a domestic water line. The mall opened on time this morning for normal business, with the exception of a handful of retailers that were impacted by the water event yesterday. Although Macy’s and AMC Theaters were not impacted yesterday by water in their spaces, they remained closed today as water service to that section of the mall was turned off while repairs were made. The repairs to the domestic water line and cleanup are close to completion. We appreciate the patience of our customers and retailers as we complete the necessary repairs.
