Kentucky court officials still don't know the extent of damage to the Fayette Circuit Courthouse from flooding caused by a broken toilet valve.
Water spread through the building when the toilet valve broke in a fourth-floor bathroom Sunday night.
Noble says undamaged areas of the circuit courthouse could reopen next week.
Officials say they've removed the toilet valve for examination and could send it for outside review in hopes of determining why it failed.
They have arranged for temporary quarters to keep Fayette Circuit Court operating this week and into next week if necessary.
