SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A mysterious leak could force officials in Sioux City to order repairs or replacement of the Tyson Events Center’s roof.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1kTrAus ) leaks were first noticed in November, and the situation has worsened since then.

During a Monday rainstorm, water dampened dozens of arena seats and dripped onto the floor. Erika Newton, who heads the city’s Events Facilities Department, says water is seeping in from tiny holes that have opened up in the roof.

No one knows why the roof material is failing or what a fix will cost.

The roof hasn’t been updated since the arena was built in 2003. It’s covered by a 15-year warranty.

So far, the leaks haven’t caused major damage.
