Historic flooding damages 25% of UC-Boulder campus buildings
- The headline-grabbing flooding in Colorado damaged 40 buildings, or about 25% of campus, at the University of Colorado Boulder.
- Due to the damage, classes were canceled and some areas of campus were evacuated, with 13 students in two residence halls moved to other areas of campus housing due to flooded rooms and 350 people in Family Housing apartments evacuated due to the proximity to Boulder Creek.
- In addition to the residence halls, water-damaged buildings include the library, theater, business building, two research buildings and virtually every building on campus with a basement.
Hillard says CU students need to "stay away from collected waters...it could be the last picture you ever take." #BoulderFlood— CBSDenver (@CBSDenver) September 12, 2013
