WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - Officials in Warwick and Cranston say it could be months before damage is fully repaired at town-owned buildings that were flooded by water pipe breaks during frigid temperatures earlier this month.

The Providence Journal reports that building directors, inspectors and construction workers will need that time to assess and fix the damage at the Warwick City Hall Annex and Cranston’s Edgewood Highlands School. Students at the school and workers at the annex have been moved to temporary quarters in other buildings.

Crews have been working at the two buildings since Jan. 8 removing carpets, tearing down Sheetrock and clearing out items damaged by water.

Officials say the buildings will have to be inspected after they’re cleared out to make sure there’s no structural damage.
