Authorities in Atlantic City say a leaky pipe that knocked out air conditioning at two casinos last weekend has been fixed, and normal air conditioning service has been restored.

Emergency Management Chief Tom Foley says Trump Plaza, Caesars and The Pier Shops at Caesars are back to having normal air conditioning. Boardwalk Hall is expected to have it by Friday.

Foley says portable air conditioning trucks have been shut off but will stay in the city through Monday, just to make sure there are no problems over the weekend.

The lack of air conditioning forced Trump Plaza to shut down last weekend, costing it millions of dollars. Caesars stayed open, but with much less business than usual.
