Barge leak forces Roadhouse Casino to close for second day

TUNICA, MS (WMC) - Tunica Roadhouse Casino is closed for a second day because of a leak in the hull of the barge.

Yesterday, casino leaders learned of the leak and closed the casino floor, but guests say they were not informed of the closure. The casino says the leak is not affecting the casino's hotel area.

The entrance to the casino floor is blocked by security officers sitting in a minivan. On Monday night, security was stationed inside at every entrance.

It is not clear whether the leak is weather-related; casino officials have not commented on the damage inside.

The casino is expected to open on Wednesday, but an exact time for the reopening has not been announced.
