Melting snow and rain led to a leak at the Clallam County Genealogical Society Research Center at 402 E. Lauridsen Blvd. in Port Angeles that damaged the facility’s ceiling, carpet and a conference table. The center is temporarily closed for repairs.
Fortunately, the damage did not spread to any local historical documents or artifacts. The leak happened in the center of the conference room. All of the books in the shelving and archives in file cabinets were up off the floor and did not get wet.
The amount of rain received has not yet allowed the roof to dry out enough for repair.
Watch the Clallam County Genealogical Society Research Center web site at http://clallamcogs.org for updates on repairs and the reopening date.
