PITTSBURGH —

Officials at the Community College of Allegheny County had to scramble to relocate science labs and classes just as the semester began.

The spring semester at the school began Monday. Water damaged five floors of the school’s Science Center.

Copper pipes split open sometime during winter break and the damage was not discovered until Jan. 2.

School officials said classes will be held in rooms and labs on the eastern side of the building that was left unharmed during the flood.
