BATON ROUGE - Water was flowing from the fourth floor down to the first level of Patrick F. Taylor Hall after a pipe burst due to freezing temperatures. 

A video shared by Balcony Bengals showed the moment a portion of the ceiling caved in and water surged onto the floor. 

Classes were canceled in the part of the building that was flooded. 

A spokesperson for LSU said the damage to the building has not been assessed yet. 

Patrick F. Taylor Hall houses LSU's College of Engineering. The 400,000-square-foot building is the largest academic building in the state.
