Officials say that water poured into the lower level at about 1 p.m. Management expects the cleanup process to continue into the weekend. The upper floor and movie theater remain open.Areas of Stratford were also hit hard, including just off exit 32 on West Broad Street, which officials say is prone to flooding.
