JENKS, Oklahoma -- The Oklahoma Aquarium re-opened Monday morning after it closed down because of a leaking water pipe Thursday evening.

Officials say damage from a frozen, burst pipe over the stingray feed tank Thursday has been contained to that one exhibit, which remains closed.

On Thursday, a witness told News On 6 he saw water leaking from the roof and was told to leave moments before the partial collapse occurred.
