Transcript 2001 floods The UC Satellite was hard hit by the floods as the entire center took in water as high as the banners. . Photo by Pin Lim Floods hit close to home Campus shuts dowtv on& week after Tropical Storvn, Allison/ reeks hoAroc Students were hit hard by the flood waters of Tropical Storm Allison as 20 inches of rain flooded buildings throughout campus causing major property damage and inconveniencing students. Dorm residents awoke June 9 to the sound of running water as rooms on the lower levels of Cougar Place, the Quad and Moody Towers flooded. Students were forced to save what they could but many suffered damage to such things as electronics and books. The dorms were not the only buildings that suffered damage. Students returning to school the week after the flood discovered that many of their classes had been moved to other buildings because of the flood. Classrooms and offices in Agnes Arnold Hall, Science and Research I, the Law Center and Philip Guthrie Hoffman Hall were damaged by the water ruining equipment, books and office supplies. Basements throughout campus were hit hard by the flood killing some mice and destroying years of valuable research. Perhaps one of the hardest hit areas around campus was the Satellite. With an estimated 7.5 feet of standing water, the recently renovated eating area suffered $1 million in damages. The juke box and arcade games in the Satellite Games Room were also destroyed. Water marks left on the interior walls of the eating area gave onlookers a good idea of where the water had been. The UC Underground was also water logged. The building was without electricity for a week when it was knocked out by the standing water. As UH began to pump out water from flooded buildings and redirect students to their classes, campus life seemed to get back to normal. Students won't soon forget however the summer flood that nearly wrecked their summer. _Michelle Norton Clean-up crews made their way down into the UC Satellite in order to begin pumping out flood water.
