The flooding at the University of Iowa has been intense. Officials are saying that Hancher Auditorium (the university’s performing arts center) could have water up to the stage! Unbelievable. I remember seeing Othello there when I was in high school.
University of Iowa’s President, Sally Mason, “has been in contact with the presidents of Iowa State University and the University of Illinois, who have offered their assistance. Don Guckert, UI vice president for facilities management, reported that technical and trades personnel from these schools are already en route to Iowa City.” via the UI Flood Blog.
