IOC 'business as usual' despite flooding at the HQ

13/11/2012

The IOC headquarters at Vidy were hit by flooding on Sunday knocking out the computer system, power and phone networks.

Staff are continuing to work to get things back to normal but considerable damage at the offices mean that it will be several weeks before the main Vidy office will be totally back to normal.

The flooding was caused by a burst water pipe on Sunday which sent thousands of gallons of water flooding through the lower levels of the building.
