    No surprise. I have a clear birds eye view of that building roof and there are always pools of unfiltered water on the ceiling. I wouldnt be surprised if it was water related. Also, i saw multiple maintenance people on roof fixing ac unit recently too. Obviously, this building wasnt in good shape. Shame to building management. Thank god no one was hurt.
