A source tells FBDC that just moments after WaPo‘s Marissa Newhall said “Why do I hear running water,” drops of water began hitting Clarence Williams‘s desk, computer and about 50 big cardboard boxes of various reporters’ files.

Then suddenly, it was just straight-up raining in the WaPo newsroom. Our source says that that there was a huge, concerted effort to get everything moved out of the way.

Word is that the flood has something to do with the fifth floor construction work — someone nicked a sprinkler head or something.

“All under control now,” we’re told.
