Oracle Arena deals with minor flooding on first floor during Warrior's game

OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- On Monday, Oracle Arena had to deal with some water damage.

During the Golden State Warriors' game, flooding was reported in several areas of the first floor, including a storage area, several bathrooms and the courtside kitchen.

A written statement from Oracle Arena said, "Earlier today, Oracle Arena experienced a minor water overflow on the event level. The issue was reported directly to the City of Oakland and area officials have asked the City of Oakland to further investigate the cause of the leak, remediate the problem and are waiting on a report from the city."

Nearby O.co Coliseum also has had flooding issues. Raw sewage backed up into the Oakland Athletics' team facilities twice last summer.
