U of L floods; classes canceled

Classes at Bellarmine and U of L are cancelled Tuesday night, and there's a lot of cleaning up to do on campus.

The rain flooded campus streets and underpasses that surround the school.  Mayor Abramson says swift water rescue boats were out on campus helping pull students and staff from buildings.

And U of L President James Ramsey said, "It has been reported that several feet of flood water (flowed into) in our Business School...We looked at our Chemistry building earlier.  Water was coming in off Floyd Street and was cascading down stairways like a waterfall."

School officials say they chose to cancel classes to keep everyone safe.  They will make a call about Wednesday's classes later.
