The storm overnight in Baltimore brought water into the basement of the Walters Art Museum. The water -  and the resulting electrical issues - forced the venue to close to visitors Thursday morning. Here is the statement from the museum:

Due to storm water and electrical issues affecting the Centre Street building of the Walters Art Museum, the museum will be closing to visitors by 11 a.m.

Baltimore City and BGE workers are on the way to the museum to assess the severity of the situation.

We will send an update when the museum is able to safely reopen to the public.
