Transcript Tak e*i n Thursday, June 7,2001, most of the students v)attending summer classes at the University of Houston scarcely noticed the rainy conditions that had begun earlier that week; the occasional downpour is just a part of life in Houston. All that evening, and into the morning of June 8th, the rain continued to fall. When all was said and done, over a period of three days, Tropical Storm Allison dropped almost forty inches of rain on the UH campus. When the waters finally receded, the damage was unfathomable. School was cancelled for a week to allow cleanup crews to get as much of the campus operational as possible. When school reopened a week later, more than two hundred classes had to be relocated. By the end of the fall semester the damage could still be seen around campus. Total cost of the damage caused by Allison may never be known, although the university officially stated the losses to be in excess of $175 million dollars. In the basement laboratories of buildings all over campus, thousands of hours of painstaking research were washed away. Virtually the entire UH O'Quinn Law Library was destroyed by the floods. Among the two most damaged buildings on campus were the two student centers: the University Center and the University Center Satellite. But, by the end of the year both of these facilities had reopened some of their services. The need for office space prompted the creation of the University Center Village, a collection of temporary buildings assembled hastily before the beginning of the fall semester. "It really is remarkable, given all the damage, how quickly UH was able to recover and reopen for the students," said John Terracina, a senior marketing major. It may take several years before everything on the University of Houston campus recovers from the wrath of Allison, but our hats must be tipped to everyone who brought everything back together so quickly so that higher education would continue at UH.
