Steve Excell, State Archivist, explains what happened during Friday morning's flood. The Washington State Archives building in Olympia, Washington, flooded early Friday, April 25, 2014, when a sink in the break room had a hose break.

The Olympian is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point.
