Campus

Newsflash: Drought over


The students, faculty and staff who came to school without umbrellas had to craft them out of trash bags and textbooks in order to avoid Wednesday’s downpour. UH’s Department of Public Safety sent out an e-mail telling everyone to stay indoors until 11:45 a.m. because of a tornado warning issued by the National Weather Service. UHDPS warned students to avoid Elgin Blvd at entrance 18, Wheeler St. at parking lot 4A, Elgin Blvd. at Spur 5, MLK Blvd. at Calhoun and entrance 17 at entrance 16 because of flooding. The storms let up at around 2 p.m., but not before some afternoon classes were canceled, and attendance was lower in those that weren’t. | Emily Chambers/The Daily Cougar

    I wish the emails about the flooding would have included exits that WEREN'T flooded, that would have been helpful as well. I was in class during the downpour, thank goodness.
